Help! Recover deleted records?
Using Filemaker Pro 8.5. ext .fp7
Ok, I accidentally clicked on "delete all records" instead of "delete record". After I noticed I could not undo, I immediately went and made a copy of the physical file, hoping the changes didn't flush to the file. When I open the copy/or recover it/save as compact, it does something internally and the filesize drops significantly (%20?). I'm hoping it works something like the windows file system where only the master index table was altered but the data is still there somewhere (in which case I can code something to scan for the data).
Is there anyway to recover the data? or dump all data blocks (reguardless of integrity) to a readable plain text format?
The table structure and relations etc. are not important, all I need back is the raw data, EVEN if its corrupted/damaged/partially overwritten.
