Projects / anyfs-tools


anyfs-tools allows you to recover and convert filesystems while using minimal extra disk space. Unlike other recovery tools, anyfs-tools doesn't copy all the files found on other disks (or partitions), but only saves information about the location of the file blocks to an external inode table. After recovery, a user may mount the damaged filesystem with anyfs and the external inode table and then interact with all recovered files with any program.

        •  23 Nov 2006 20:40

          Release Notes: An Anyfuse module was added (now kernel source dependence is optional if you have FUSE). The Debian package was split into multiple packages.
