This may help you to get your data back:


Thanks. However, the real problem here is that the backup disk is a NetBSD FFS2, which unfortunately does a much more thorough job when deleting files/directories. Namely, it literally erases all metadata regarding the stuff, so, although the file data blocks are still physically on the disk, I can't even determine which ones used to belong to one file, not to mention file names and directory structure. It would be quite an interesting job restoring this into a valid RDB backup directory containing a few hundred thousand files...
