NAME

       lziprecover - recovers data from damaged lzip files

SYNOPSIS

       lziprecover [options] [files]

DESCRIPTION

       Lziprecover is a data recovery tool and decompressor for files in the lzip compressed data
       format (.lz). Lziprecover is able to repair slightly damaged files, produce a correct file
       by  merging the good parts of two or more damaged copies, extract data from damaged files,
       decompress files and test integrity of files.

       Lziprecover can repair perfectly most files with small errors (up to one single-byte error
       per  member),  without  the  need of any extra redundance at all. Losing an entire archive
       just because of a corrupt byte near the beginning is a thing of the past.

       Lziprecover can remove the damaged members from multimember files, for example multimember
       tar.lz archives.

       Lziprecover  provides random access to the data in multimember files; it only decompresses
       the members containing the desired data.

       Lziprecover facilitates the management of metadata stored as trailing data in lzip files.

       Lziprecover is not a replacement for regular backups, but a last line of defense  for  the
       case where the backups are also damaged.

       -f, --force
              overwrite existing output files

       -i, --ignore-errors
              all errors in -D, format errors in -l, --dump

       -k, --keep
              keep (don't delete) input files

       -l, --list
              print (un)compressed file sizes

       -m, --merge
              correct errors in file using several copies

       -o, --output=<file>
              place the output into <file>

       -q, --quiet
              suppress all messages

       -R, --repair
              try to repair a small error in file

       -s, --split
              split multimember file in single-member files

       -t, --test
              test compressed file integrity

       -v, --verbose
              be verbose (a 2nd -v gives more)

       --loose-trailing
              allow trailing data seeming corrupt header

       --dump=<list>:d:t
              dump members listed/damaged, tdata to stdout

       --remove=<list>:d:t
              remove members, tdata from files in place

       --strip=<list>:d:t
              copy files to stdout stripping members given

       If  no  file  names are given, or if a file is '-', lziprecover decompresses from standard
       input to standard output.  Numbers may be followed by a multiplier: k = kB = 10^3 =  1000,
       Ki = KiB = 2^10 = 1024, M = 10^6, Mi = 2^20, G = 10^9, Gi = 2^30, etc...

       Exit  status:  0  for a normal exit, 1 for environmental problems (file not found, invalid
       flags, I/O errors, etc), 2 to indicate a corrupt or invalid input file, 3 for an  internal
       consistency error (eg, bug) which caused lziprecover to panic.
