Question Finding the names of files deleted through samba?


Hey guys, yes I'm new here, and fairly new to linux as well. I have been running a redhat 9 server for quite a while now, it doesn't do much more than just run Samba all day long and hold a bunch of data.

Well of course I accidentally deleted some stuff! I stopped the delete halfway through so I really just need to know what files actually got deleted. They can be replaced, I just need to know which ones got zapped. Is that possible?

Thanks alot!

If you previously configured Samba to log unlinking, yes.

Maybe not, depends. You say the files can be replaced, so you could use a listing of those files to compare with what's left on the share, right?
