help. i'm missing files in my ecryptfs home directory and wondering if there is a way to recover. i had a number of files open in vim inside a tmux session and i suspect that my home directory was remounted at some point. any files i had saved in vim after this point seem to have gone to a black hole.
i've been able to reproduce what i think has happened by logging out, logging back in and then rejoining my tmux session:
pwd shows my current path as unreachable:
➜ ~>pwd (unreachable)/
if i edit a file in my home dir without noticing this had happened:
➜ ~>echo test > test ➜ ~>cat test test
cd to my home directory (the same place i thought i was), the file is gone:
➜ ~>cd ➜ ~>cat test cat: test: No such file or directory ➜ ~>ls -l test ls: cannot access test: No such file or directory ➜ ~>ls ls: cannot access test: No such file or directory Downloads/ Music/ RestConf.json vcs-vlan.retry Dropbox/ my_playbook2.retry settings/ ...
is there anywhere this file may have been saved? i've checked the mount path with the ecryptfs filesystem unmounted, but no luck. any ideas?
