Re: giis-ext4 undelete




Thanks for your  feedback/comments.I have following queries,

1.Is your root file system (/dev/xvda1) is ext4?

2.Have you added the directory /mnt/d1 using "giis-ext4 --install" option?
Because you need to configure it to protect important directories, in this case add /mnt/d1 before running "giis-ext4 -g".

I get the same error message,when giis-ext4 -g is invoked without configuring it using "giis-ext4 --install"

-----------
giis-ext4: giis-ext4.c:863: open_db: Assertion `error == 0' failed.
Aborted (core dumped)
-------------

See my comments (/* */) on right-side in following output:
-------------------------
# giis-ext4 --install

 Device Found : /dev/mapper/vg_space-lv_root     /*  root device taken from /etc/mtab */
 giis : Taking snapshot of current File system    

 giis-ext4:Installation begins..
 giis-ext4: header table created
 giis-ext4: file table created
 What's the maximum directory depth?5        /*Max. directory depth involved */

 Enter the dirname name,that you would like to protect(Max. 7 directories)
 Enter dirname:/mnt/d1              /* Enter important directories to protect */

 Press 1 to add/protect another directory else Press 0 to complete: 1

 Enter dirname:/opt/testing          /* Enter important directories  */

 Press 1 to add/protect another directory else Press 0 to complete: 0

 Check for newly files every 'auto update time' minutes.
Enter auto update time: 10        /* Every 10 minutes giis-ext4 , searches for any                         modified/new files under protected dirs*/
-------------------

Now if you delete files from protected dirs (say /mnt/d1),then you can recover them using  "giis-ext4 -g " option.

Thanks for the Makefile too,I'll use it :)
If you are stilling getting same error , please let me know.

I'm always curious about these undeletion attempts and so I've tried it.
But without luck again:

  # giis-ext4 -g
  Enter your option: 1
  giis-ext4: giis-ext4.c:863: open_db: Assertion `error == 0' failed.
  Aborted
  # echo $?
  134

This has been compiled with
 - e2fslibs-dev 1.41.10
 - libsqlite3-dev 3.6.22
 - gcc 4.4.3, with -g -ggdb

I've attached the gdb output and tune2fs output to this email.

HTH,
Christian.
