Projects / e2undel


e2undel is an interactive console tool that recovers the data of deleted files on an ext2 file system under Linux. A library that allows you to recover deleted files by name is included. e2undel does not manipulate any internal ext2 structures, and it does not require any additional tools. It should be useable without knowledge of the ext2 interna.

    Release Notes: This release adds large file support (LFS) in order to access file system images that are larger than 2 GByte.

      Release Notes: This release fixes a bug introduced in version 0.8 that sometimes prevents the recovery of deleted files by their names. If you're using the undel library enclosed in the e2undel package to undelete files by name, you should upgrade; if you don't, you're not concerned.

        Release Notes: This release works with filesystem images and works better on heavily damaged systems. It is possible that this is the last release: as more and more people are upgrading to ext3 (or any other of the new Linux file systems), e2undel ist getting obsolete.
