So I didn't realize my system drive had filled up... and TaskWarrior overwrote my 'pending.data' with a 0-byte copy. d-: I had worked SO hard to get all my tasks imported from various other notes (many of which I deleted along the way), and hadn't yet prepared for the possibility of data loss. Should've set it up to use my Dropbox... Grr... why doesn't TaskWarrior make ANY backup buy default? That data is so important, and yet so small and trivial to backup. ]-:<
Anyway, my 'undo.data' is totally intact and seems to contain all the information theoretically needed to reconstruct 'pending.data'. Has anyone ever written a script to do this, or does somebody have regex's I could use for conversion? Unfortunately right now I have no sample 'pending.data' to look at... d-:
OR: does anybody know of a simple Linux utility I can use to recover previous file versions? It's possible no data was overwritten, since the replacement is empty.
