I foolishly removed some source code from my Mac OS X Snow Leopard machine with rm -rf when doing something with buildout. I want to try and recover these files again. I haven't touched the system since to try and seek an answer.
I found this article and it seems like the grep method is the way to go, but when running it on my machine I'm getting 'Resource busy' when trying to run it on the disk.
I'm using this command:
sudo grep -a -B1000 -A1000 'video_output' /dev/disk0s2 > file.txt
Where 'dev/disk0s2' is what came up when I ran
I get this when running:
grep: /dev/disk0s2: Resource busy
I'm not an expert with this stuff, I'm trying my best. Please can anyone help me further? I'm on the verge of losing two days of source code work!
