    Awesome little tool! Trivial to build and install, and saved the day after an 'rm -rf' of the wrong directory. Did not have to unmount the partition (which would have been a problem, because it's LUKS-encrypted), just remounted it read-only and recovered my files with no hassles.

    Quickly recovered many of the specified files. (Not all, maybe because it was a root partition that required Linux to shut down first before unmounting). Very grateful as this saved me a lot of time. Restore directory (even if you only want the contents) was immensely useful since there were too many names that were too long to remember. Even if you don't have the exact name, it will suggest some (presumably based on the partition's journal). Website provides enough detail to generate the date in the format required by --before and --after. If ./configure succeeded but compilation results in an error, rerun ./configure.

    Easy to use and works really well. I was able to recover all of the files I needed in the location they were stored. Overall, a really great tool to have handy for a storage system. Thanks for the awesome work!

    I was able to recover all data! I had a lot of trouble getting it running. The "-o directory" options seems to be bugged. extundelete version 0.2.4 libext2fs version 1.42 I figured out that I had to go to the directory where i wanted to have the backup and just run "extundelete --restore-all /dev/sdb1".
