Projects / DARE


DARE is a small Linux kernel patch to the VFS (virtual filesystem) which transparently moves files into a special directory on each filesystem instead of removing them. It works like the Novell Netware Data Recovery system or MS Windows' Recycle Bin. DARE is independent of filesystem type, so it can be used without constraints on almost every filesystem. Deleted files are collected in a directory named "deleted" on the filesystem's root directory. There are also user space utilities for dealing with deleted files.
