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 circumstances, 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.
