Today I mistakenly ran rm -r on the wrong directory on a amazon cloud EBS instance - ubuntu 10.4 - ext3 file system. Shortly afterward the panic began.
Naturally we don't have backups of these files.
Is anyone aware of any tools or pointers that can help to restore these files?
I've come across http://extundelete.sourceforge.net/ but I'm uncertain if this is an appropriate solution for an amazon instance
