• Looking for extundelete geek


    Hello everybody, after an update I lost all my personal files. I tried extundelete to recover them. The partition is NOT mounted, a condition for extundelete to work. The output I get is this:

    NOTICE: Extended attributes are not restored.

    Before I completely give up, does any of you who may be more experienced see what could be done differently to be more successful? Thx very much for your kind help.

  • it is gambling if you already write to the disk or do some reboots using the system after deleting the files…

  • You are right - I have rebooted since so I give up. Thx anyway.
