    Description 
    Some Aleph files (such as, /exlibris/aleph/u22_1/xxx01/publishing files) were overwritten. How can they be restored (at an Ex Libris Hosted site)? 

     

    Resolution 
    Daily snapshots are saved in the /exlibris/.snapshot/ directory (a hidden directory). To see them do: 

    >cd /exlibris/.snapshot/ 
    ../exlibris/.snapshot>ls -lrt 
    total 32 
    drwxrwxrwx 11 root root 4096 Jun 14 08:00 sc_dc02kg0489na-weekly_20150628073000/ 
    drwxrwxrwx 11 root root 4096 Jun 14 08:00 sc_dc02kg0489na-daily_20150630072000/

    drwxrwxrwx 11 root root 4096 Jun 14 08:00 sc_dc02kg0489na-daily_20150627072000/ 
    drwxrwxrwx 11 root root 4096 Jun 14 08:00 sc_dc02kg0489na-daily_20150626072000/ 
    drwxrwxrwx 11 root root 4096 Jun 14 08:00 sc_dc02kg0489na-daily_20150625072000/ 
    drwxrwxrwx 11 root root 4096 Jun 14 08:00 sc_dc02kg0489na-daily_20150624072000/ 
    drwxrwxrwx 11 root root 4096 Jun 14 08:00 sc_dc02kg0489na-daily_20150623072000/ 

    (Note that the timestamp is not meaningful. The date of the snapshot can be seen as ...daily_20150630...,etc.) 

    cd to the desired directory within the desired snapshot and copy the files to the desired location.
