lsdel: Filesystem not open

Recommended Posts

I deleted a file I would like back and read a few tutorials all of which declared ext3 would be able to use same methods as ext2. So, at that I began attempting to use debugfs to tackle this project..

I got hung up pretty quickly though. upon entering the lsdel command I get the error previously listed...

lsdel: Filesystem not open

searching the internet has come up a total bust. Anybody have any thoughts on this? :shock:

I've never used it, but I just did

 

man debugfs

 

and I have a question. Did you start with?

 

debugfs -w [device-name]

 

That opens the filesystem for read-write (editing). I use reiserfs, so I can't really test much for you.

yes I did open the file system. I read up a tutorial on it, and followed it. However, it was written for ext2 and I run ext3. I sort of temporarily gave up on this venture. I would still be interested in knowing if somebody out there has any successful experience with this procedure.
