Is there another utility that can be used on an XFS file system that does not require the file system to be unmounted.

If have a live server, but I don't want to take it off line and only want to check for recently deleted files and directories. You could say it is a "hot examination" or a light touch to see what is there. It would be equally fanastic to find if any found files could be restored to a directory without taking the server offline.
