how to recover file names in lost+found folder under CENTOS?
Posted on 2012-12-27
I've came across a tricky situation and your advice will be very much appreciated,
I have an Elastix (Centos + Asterisk + FREEPBX) server running at work.
the server froze today due to some failure (I believe it to be a hardware issue related to the raid card) , command line did not react nor "ALT + CTRL + DEL" so I had to force the power off.
On boot I've noticed the server couldn't mount the raid ext3 partition called "/record",
Next I've ran fsck on the raid path, when fsck.ext3 finished it left me with 210 GB of files under lost+found folder with broken file names.
all of the files are *.wav files (call recording) and I must correct the file names in order they can be of any use (the file name linked to a database entry with call information).
I've tried searching the web for a solution but it appears I'm f***ed, I must restore the original file names.
Thanks in advance.
