Windows 7 Home Premium x64 with ownCloud 1.4.1 sync client and ownCloud 5.0.12 server on Ubuntu 12.04 VPS.
Sequence of events:
- Installation of ownCloud server on the VPS.
- Configuration, creation of non-admin user. User credentials were the same as previous - basically, today I made transferred VPS from Debian 7 to Ubuntu 12.04. So the address is the same, login credentials are the same, the only changed thing - SSL certificate.
- Moments after the user was created on the server, ownCloud client on my Windows machine pops up a window to review and accept the security certificate that has been changed.
- No settings were changed on desktop client, except the fact that I did accept the changed SSL certificate. Previous settings for sync, when I did set it up (for time when I installed Debian 7 ownCloud (that was 5.0.12 as well)), were to sync local folders to the server (NOT clear sync).
- I get a feeling that something has gone wrong, as ownCloud instantly pops green mark of sync being finished successfully (on the taskbar icon).
- I instantly open ownCloud, activate pause, and check my ownCloud folder.
- Everything is empty but two most recently modified files - Unii.odf with date modified 2013.10.11. 3:11 and ts3_ubuntu.txt with date modified 2013.10.12 0:42.
- New file appeared - .csync_journal, modified by the time the sync had finished - 2013.10.12. 1:47.
- The rest of my files are gone.
Total size of the deleted data is roughly 7GB, they were on a NTFS disc, secondary disc that has 503GB out of 575GB free. It is a logical partition on HDD in Asus N75SF notebook.
Can I restore at least part of my files? Some of them are important for me - family photos, business documents, education certificates, et cetera.
