This could be very hard to use. Say I have a text file I accidentally deleted. I guess for the rules I have to know the beginning text. I am trying this program out it just doesn't seem that useful to me.
I created a file like so
echo Deletetest with more stuff so I can see it working> Deletetest.txt
removed it like so
rm -f Deletetest.txt
used this as the ruleset
echo -e "0 string Deletetest\nextention txt\ncommand safecat \"\$1\" > \$1">rules.txt
created a place to put saved files like so
then used magicrescue as follows
magicrescue -r rules.txt /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 -d /tmp/resuced
Maybe I just don't understand something but it just wasn't working too well.
one of the files it rescues should be right no?
