    Data recovery linux

    Hello,

    I need to recover a back-up from my server which i deleted yesterday. is there any linux utility/script or whatever which can restore data?

    I'm running centos 4.3 64-bit SMP

    Harddisks: 6 X 18.2 GB U160 scsi disks, 15k rpm
    2 disks in raid 1, on channel 0 to the raid controller (OS and software)
    4 disks in raid 5, on channel 1 to the raid controller (web files, php, html, images etc. and all databases. )

    Volumegroup 1
    logical volume 1 = 14 GB for the OS
    Logical volume 2 = 4 GB for the swap file

    Volume group 2
    Logical volume 1 = 20 GB, mounted to /var for the databases and other var stuff
    Logical volume 2 = 30 GB, mounted to /home for all webfiles etc.


    The backup was located on VG2, LV2 = /home , and i removed it by using the rm -rf command.
    I know the exact filename etc. Maybe that will help?

    I hope someone has some suggestions.

    Thanks!

    Linux doesn't, in fact have a set "recycle bin" like Windows does, so, traditionally once you delete your file, it's gone.

    Now, that's not saying all hope is lost. Check out this article on what MIGHT be able to save your data. Of course, it's quite technical, because recovering data in Linux just isn't as easy as it is in Windows

    Good Luck
