As a quick way to copy files between two systems, I NFS mounted a
folder from someone elses hp-ux 10.2 (with vxfs filesystem) on /tmp
folder on my redhat linux machine. (which turned out to be really
stupid thing to do)
what happened was I frogot to unmount /tmp before I go home.
of course, redhat has cronjobs that clean up /tmp folder every night.
One of those cronjobs use "tmpwatch" command which deletes old files.
You guessed it... because I had NFS mounted a hp-ux folder on redhat
/tmp, tmpwatch went through mounted hp-ux folder destroying files.
And it turned out the other person doesn't have a recent backup. :(
Now I am trying to recover entire missing folder, dozens of files ..
I tried to use "unrm" utility but it only works with hp-ux "HFS"
filesystem not "vxfs".
Does anyone know a way to recover (at least a *y weeeny ) bit of
data in vxfs file system. I appreciate any help and messages of
