I accidentaly overrode a file while transfering some data with rsync -avz.

Is is possible to restore it? I looked at Photorec but it seems to be looking through the whole drive, which in my case is 1 TB and according to the latest estimate will take over 13hours (and this is constantly increasing) to just scan and I have no idea what I will be presented with afterwards.

  • Doestn't seem to work. It doesn't show me any files. I even tried a test where I created a file and deleted it or overwrote it and used debugfs immediately afterwards - nothing. – ThunderBiggi Jun 21 '19 at 14:19
