Are there any ways to recover files from rm -rf dirname after a few
days, assuming there have been few if any writes to the filesystem since?
I've been playing with tools like foremost and jpegrescue a bit... and
running tests on other filesystems, but it doesn't appear that I'm
getting full images back from the disk. Looking at an octal dump of a
disk image (dd if=/dev/blah of=/some/file), I can find the file
header... and about 20k of the file, generally... and then there's
garbage. Presumably the file's been broken into blocks and there's
inode table data to consider...
