However, in almost all cases I would not expect that you'll be able to recover "all deleted files" from a properly wiped filesystem, even with a journal. (the exception might be something like only a few files deleted, and journaled data mode, and a very smart recovery tool, although I'd expect the wiper to wrap the log anyway, depending on how it runs). -Eric _______________________________________________ Ext3-users mailing list Ext3-users@xxxxxxxxxx https://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/ext3-users
