I have done quite a bit of searching on the subject and seem to be coming back to the same conclusion.

I recently accidentally removed a symlink recursively in a sleep deprived stupor and lost an entire directory of personal music projects.  Being that I had not performed backups for that day, the files inquestion were not written to the taped drive yet, and I was curious.. since the ffsrecov port has been broken for some time.. what my options are of trying to recover these files.

I immediately unmounted the disk in question and now am in the process of trying to find the solution.

Any suggestions are appreciated.. thank you
