RSYNCRYPTO_RECOVER(1)	Rsyncrypto_recover User	Manual	 RSYNCRYPTO_RECOVER(1)

NAME
       rsyncrypto_recover  - recover all usable	data from corrupted rsyncrypto
       filemaps

SYNOPSIS
       rsyncrypto_recover badfile > goodfile

DESCRIPTION
       This manual page	documents the rsyncrypto_recover command.

       When the	rsyncrypto command is used with	the --name-encrypt command,  a
       file  containing	 the mapping from the plain text representation	to the
       encrypted file names is formed. This file mapping has a	strict	format
       of records delimited by a NULL byte.

       A  bug  introduced in version 1.07 or rsyncrypto, and solved in version
       1.09, caused this file to be somewhat corrupted under  certain  circum-
       stances,	most notably the use of	the --delete-keys command line option.

       It is important to note that the	only  records  corrupted  are  records
       that  were  due	to  be deleted anyways.	This bug did not result	in any
       loss of actual important	data.  It did, however,	leave  behind  a  file
       that rsyncrypto then refused to open.

       rsyncrypto_recover  will	read in	a file map, and	output to the standard
       output only those records that are valid.

PARAMETERS
       badfile
	      A	file map that contains some good and some corrupted records.
