ECN Accounts: Retrieving a Lost File Using flost

If you wish to restore a file that is no longer in the tomb, or was for some reason not entombed, you may use flost to request that a file be retrieved from backup tape. But before using flost, try retrieving your destroyed files with unrm command. The flost approach may be successful if:
  1. the file existed for at least 24 hours before being deleted, and
  2. has been deleted for no more than a month ago

To use flost type the command:

                % flost
or use the web-based version at /ECN/services/flost.

Flost will ask you a series of questions about how and when the file was deleted. Giving specific information in response to these questions makes it more likely that the file will be recovered.
