Re: [EP-tech] Reinstating deleted file

Can you just take the database backup and do a diff on the sql tables?
This should help you to find the differences.

P.S: did you search for the deletion status? Maybe it hasn't been
erased, just put on deletion?

I haven’t managed to find a solution to this so I’m hoping someone has
some experience in this area.

I have a situation something like this:

  * Staff member creates empty eprint 29788
  * Staff member uploads the first version, my_file_20190404.pdf, as
    supplied by academic. URL is /29788/1/my_file_20190404.pdf
  * Staff member uploads revised version, my_file_20190510.pdf, as
    supplied by academic. URL is /29788/7/my_file_20190510.pdf
  * Staff member removes first version, my_file_20190404
  * Academic asks for the first version to be re-instated as it had
    been hot linked to
  * Staff member uploads a copy of my_file_20190510.pdf
    as my_file_20190404.pdf. URL is /29788/13/my_file_20190404.pdf

This matches the expectations set out in the documentation where each
upload was recorded separately as a file but I can’t find anything
covering ‘undeletes'

Can I re create file 01 and add it back to eprints, using means fair
or foul?
We’re using IRStats2 for tracking access so a solution would need to
work with that - otherwise I'll simply tell the staff member in
question we can’t fix the deletion.
