I feel lucky! (reiserfs recovery)


Hi, just wanted to share this...
I deleted a whole reiserfs partition by mistake! (that was /dev/hda8 mounted on /srv/docs)
(and more than 4GB important data were here, years of work!, I had some data backed up but not all)
So I umounted quickly the partition and google'd for a solution
I found this link:
http://antrix.net/journal/techtalk/r...howto.comments

So following the informations I did run:
Code:
reiserfsck --rebuild-tree -S -l /root/recovery.log /dev/hda8
I remounted the partition and voila: All my files were magically here, at the same place!!
(some old deleted files were in lost+found directory as well)

I feel so lucky!

Man, I wasn't aware of this... even www.namesys.com is not reachable anymore...
I will continue to use this filesystem regardless but it's scary!!
