Hi where do i find deleted file from samba link.?


Hi all,

I have mistakenly deleted files from my windows client that logged in through samba server that had a shared folder link to another linux server.

Sell diagram below


Windows client----->linux server(will contains a shared folder link)------> linux server (samba server with the share folder)


Where do i get the delete files i case i do recovery. I check in my windows recycle bin. They are not present, what tool can i use for recovery.?

Nowhere. In Linux delete really does mean delete. No sloppy computer practices here.

Restore from backup. (If no backup, then sloppy computer practices here)

People have reported good results using Photorec to recover files. e.g. http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...5D-4175463362/

Chances of success will depend on how much work the Samba server does.

If there was already write access to the server chances are high that your files are at least partially overwritten, with any minute the system is running a bit more.
That is why backups are essential.
