hi everyone,

my friend has the "HD-H250LAN" model, and she accidentally deleted a whole bunch of files. Is there a way to recover them?

thanks

- Brendan

Hi there!

Unless she has the recycled bin feature enabled then....probably not :S

If she has, the deleted files go to a hidden folder called ".trash", Try enabling viewing hidden files and folder and check.

No. Unfortunately I did not even realise that there was a trash can feature until now! Any way at all to recover the files in this instance?

Thanks

There's probably no way to recover deleted if they resided on a share (on /dev/hda3), except for professional data rescue.

If you know the inodes you can recover the data. Lot of work though!

There's still a way to recover those files. This may require lots of work.
First, do not copy anything to the partition where the data was deleted. Copying a new data to that partition may overwrite the location of the deleted files.
Then, go to http://e2undel.sourceforge.net/ and get the tool and the instructions. You may need to open the Linkstation box and attach the HD to a Linux PC. Or if you have Development tools installed on your LS, you can compile the tool (on separate partition of course) and run it.

Unfortunately, it doesn't work with ext3. http://e2undel.sourceforge.net/usage.html

There might be instances where in you would have to face folders loss situation in Mac trash, it is possible to recover folders deleted from trash. :)
