Here at work we are currently using a Novell box as our fileserver. We
are considering moving over to Linux as most of our servers are Linux
We do have a concern however using Linux as a fileserver however:
Novell gives you the option of recovering a deleted file, if you
accidentaly destroyed an important file. (It also gives you a "purge"
option that lets you truly destroy the file.)
How would linux work in this environment? I know Linux can make an
excellent fileserver, but what happens if a file is deleted? AFAIK the
ext2fs does not take kindly to the restoration of deleted files. Any
solutions to this? Would a SAMBA based fileserver have a "undelete"
option? (all our clients are unfortunatly MS based.)
