How to get last version of recovered files?

#1 Post by sugarman » 29 Jun 2016, 23:58

HI,

After recovering of removed files I have about 200 GB of files. As I can see, there are a lot of different versions of the same file.
Is it possible to find the last version of some file?

For example, I have:

file1.py
file2.py
file1.py
file2.py
...

with different names after recovering, like: f266123512.py, f266212264) and so on, and so on..

If it possible to find the last version of file1.py and the last version of file2.py between list of these recovered files?

I'm using a grep command to find interested files for me, but there are really a lot of the same files...

If you are under Linux, you can use fslint to remove file duplicate in recovered files. This way, it will be easier for you to find the latest version of the file you are looking for.
