Undelete files from a folder only
Is it possible to undelete files from one folder only (on an ext4 partition)? If so, do I need to mount the partition first? And what would be the exact command? I need to undelete *.xz files deleted from a folder named myfolder on a partition abcd which is usually mounted on /media/abcd/myfolder. Can I add an option to recover only files created later than 10th Feb, 2013?
I checked and found several utilities for recovering deleted files: extundelete, foremost, scalpel, photorec of testdisk etc. I tried extundelete and foremost but they search entire partition for deleted files and hence take a long time for unnecessary files.
Thanks for your help.
