ws_restore - Man Page

restore a workspace that was removed, but is still in recovery area


ws_restore [-h] [-l] [-F FILESYSTEM]  NAME TARGET


After a workspace was released by user or deleted due to expiration, it can be (depending on administrator policy) kept for a while in an unaccessible area of the filesystem before beeing finally deleted to free the space. In this case, it can be restored. The decision how long it can be restored is up to administrator.

ws_restore -l has to be used to list the restorable workspaces and to restore a selected workspace into a new existing workspace (attention, this name is not identical with the name displayed by ws_list !)

ws_restore can not be automated, it has to be executed in an interactive session by a human.
