Versioning filesystems (undelete)

Versioning allows deleted files to be recovered with the undelete(C) command or on the Desktop as described in Chapter 12, ``Deleting and recovering files and directories'' in Using the Desktop. If versioning is enabled on a filesystem, files and directories can be designated for versioning and administered as described in ``Retrieving deleted files'' in the Operating System User's Guide. The versioning feature can be enabled system-wide or for individual filesystems.

To enable versioning on all non-root DTFS/HTFS filesystems:

  1. Use the Hardware/Kernel Manager as described in ``Configuration tools'' in the Performance Guide. Select category 10, ``Filesystem configuration.''

  2. Relink the kernel with the new filesystem parameters -- see ``Relinking the kernel'' in the SCO OpenServer Handbook.

  3. Reboot the system by entering:


To enable versioning on a per-filesystem basis, see ``Filesystem mount options (HTFS, EAFS, AFS, S51K)'' and ``Filesystem mount options (DTFS)''.

To enable versioning on the root filesystem, see ``Modifying HTFS, EAFS, AFS, and S51K root filesystem mount configuration'' or ``Modifying HTFS, EAFS, AFS, and S51K root filesystem mount configuration''.
