Channel 16

Channel16 is graphical tool that allows users to browse the content of deleted files in an ext2 filesystem interactively, and to recover them into new files. The application also provides a search and rescue operation. This allows the user to input some exact text from the deleted file, which the program uses to search through all deleted inodes. Channel16 uses the low-level methods provided by e2fsprogs. The front end is implemented with Java Swing, and Java Native Interface (JNI) is used to bridge between Java and the ext2fs operations.

    Too many dependencies
    Yea I agree that there's too many dependencies for this program. I still can't get it to work. It said :
    Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: gnu/getopt/Getopt

    According to the web page, the application
    is written in java.

    I'm concearned this is not the best approach
    for an emergency recovery software. A less
    dependent approach would have produce an
    application with less potential problems when in use in a situation with enough problems already
    (hint) (hint).
