comment Is there a “smart” file compression utility that can apply different algorithms to different files?
@CristianCiupitu - many of the questions on SF are not strictly server-specific, but could be equally applied to desktops.

Why is this off-topic?

comment Is there a limit on CNAME records for subdomains?
In my case the company was all of it at once - TLD holder, registrar and DNS hoster.

@MichaelHampton - Of course. That goes without saying. It's not the first time I'm dealing with data recovery, although this is the trickiest case so far.

@MarkHenderson - I know that. The problem is that the disk contained lots of private data - photos, videos, MP3, some websites... Tens of thousands of files. Manually going through each of them would take years.

@MatthewIfe - I don't know. Most likely not. He says it happened during a reinstall of the OS and he realized his mistake immediately. All the system data is on other disks, so I don't think that anything else but pvcreate has been done to it. But I don't have any proof.

@ewwhite - I don't follow. How could you guess filename & location by file contents?

If there was a backup routine, I wouldn't HAVE this question. :D Luckily, the data there isn't THAT important, so if it's lost - well, meh, but we start a new life. Still, I want to give it my best. Looks like it's time to start pretending that I'm a digital forensics expert and write my own tool. :)

I aborted to see the incomplete results. Seems that the IntelliRAW just dumps the inode contents or something. I'm getting files named "00002601.txt" and inside there are man pages or logfiles or whatever. I'm afraid this won't do. :(
