recovering/finding data lost in a crash?
Posted on 2000-02-15
I'm running Linux 2.2.10 with RT-Linux.
During a data acquisition task, my computer locked up and I had to do a hard reboot. When the computer came back
up, my data file that was open and being written to during the crash, another closed datafile, and the directory containing both datafiles were missing. i.e., directory newdata, which contains the files file1.dat and file2.dat was totally missing. (My application was in the middle of writing to file2.dat when the computer crashed). If it was just file2.dat that was missing, I wouldn't be totally surprised, but the fact that the main directory itself is missing really surprises me. Is it totally gone or is there a way that I can find it?
Thanks in advance! -Dave
