I was asked to look at data recovery from ext3..... and no, it didnt
work. An absent minded colleage rm'd the web root of a server which
hadn't its latest changes committed to the subversion repo.
I've been thinking about it, and wondering if it would be an idea to
replace rm with a script based on mv to make it easier to recover from
incidents like this. It gets complex when you consider the various
commandline switches and then handling multiple files of the same name
in wherever you move the files, missing folder context. Was thinking
of moving files to a zapme folder in some location with a cron script
to actually delete files or folders in zapme folders which are older
than 1 week old.
Just curious to know if anyone has worked on anything like that before
or seen anything like it in the online projects?
