Recover a file from an NFS volume WITHOUT snapshot


Is there a way to recover a file from an NFS volume where a snapshot doesn't exist?  I'm assuming the file is still there, just marked as deleted.  Any ideas?



Not that I know way I can think of since WAFL isn't like a local file system with utilties can undelete... There is one possible exception... if you run "snap list -A" are there any recent aggregate snapshots?  If there are, you could restore the aggregate or aggr copy the aggregate from that snapshot and see if the file is in the volume from the aggregate snapshot...that does require a full restore or full copy out of the containing aggregate though.
