NAME

       btrfs-restore - try to restore files from a damaged btrfs filesystem image

SYNOPSIS

       btrfs restore [options] <device> <path> | -l <device>

DESCRIPTION

       btrfs restore is used to try to salvage files from a damaged filesystem and restore them
       into <path> or just list the tree roots.

       Since current btrfs-check(8) or btrfs-rescue(8) only has very limited usage, btrfs restore
       is normally a better choice.

           Note
           It is recommended to read the following btrfs wiki page if your data is not salvaged
           with default option: https://btrfs.wiki.kernel.org/index.php/Restore
