Is there possible way to recover files like .dbf from linux redhat?

edit retag flag offensive close merge delete


Can you please provide more information on what you're trying to do? What version of Fedora is this? Did you just delete a file and want to recover it? Is it a database you've lost? More information would be helpful.

While many commands or solutions can apply to any modern linux distribution, Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Fedora are not the same product. There's no expectation that the same packages and commands will work. If you need RHEL support, this isn't the place to get it.

Install testdisk and give PhotoRec a try

  1. sudo yum install testdisk
  2. sudo photorec
  3. select disk
  4. choose "File Opt"
  5. deselect all and select dbf
  6. start

I've used PhotoRec before to recover lost files and worked good. Notice tho that dbf is deselected by default in PhotoRec because it's prone to false positive, but give it a try anyway. Good luck!
