Can deleted files on a NetRS be recovered?

Can deleted files on a NetRS be recovered using the receiver’s web interface or programmatic interface?


Deleting files on a NetRS is equivalent to using the "rm" command in Linux and requires using a Linux program like "ext3grep". This requires removal of the internal flashcard which would void the receiver’s warranty if not performed by a licensed technician.

If you remove files that you wish to recover, DO NOT RECORD ANY MORE DATA ON THE RECEIVER and TURN THE POWER OFF.

Contact the UNAVCO equipment repair facility. Check out the UNAVCO Equipment Repair page for information on requesting repairs and data recovery.
