 recover deleted files
Author: Ede Wolf 
Date:   26-12-02 17:45

Hello,

I've accidentally rm'ed a file and would like to know wether there is a chance to get it back.
I found there is a undelete(2) function available, but I have no clue how to use ist.
ffsrecover from the ports does not seem to work, it complains about missing magic. However, fsck claims everything is fine.
Running FreeBSd 4.7-stable.

Thx for any help
