How do I recover a bzip2 file?

Postby chandranjoy » Wed Sep 01, 2010 8:11 pm

In order to recover a bzip2 file, follow these steps:

1. Test the integrity of the bzip2 file by typing the following command:

bzip2 -t [filename]

2. If the input is corrupted, run the command:

bzip2recover [filename]

3. Lastly, run:

bzip2 -dc rec*file.bz2 > [recovered_data]

That's it folks :)
