Initial release.

This document is supposed to be as an complementary to the Ext2fs-Undeletion mini-HOWTO written by Aaron Crane. I really recommend you to carefully study that one before reading this.

Here I will describe a straight forward way of recovering whole directory structures, instead of file by file, that have been removed by a misplaced rm -rf.
