Poor file recovery from ext4 partitions

Post by Anon » Wed Jul 28, 2021 4:49 am

Hi there,

Just for fun I've tried recovering files on an ext4 partition.

As far as I can see the file metadata is still present on the partition but R-Studio fails to find and show any deleted files at all.

Searching by file content shows four deleted JPEG files but file names are lost.

When Linux deletes files it does delete them, including all file info about deleted files.
Still, I've passed this file to our developers.
