Hi all,

I developed a tool to undelete files and directories.
I did this after I accidently deleted 3 GB of my home

I have been able to successfully recover all 50,000 files.

Note that this works WITHOUT prior installed patches or
changes (like giis).

I have sent a mail to Juri Haberland, asking him to
change the FAQ entry that claims that it is impossible
to undelete files on ext3, but he has not replied to
my mail at all. I still hope that the FAQ can be changed
to point to the HOWTO that I have just written:
