    Hi all,

    I know very little about iNodes, and I need some help. Recently one of my drives died, and I sent it to a data recovery specialist to have it sorted. However, it appears there was an issue with the drive so not all of my files have come back. What I do have now is about 175GB of iNode files. So my question is, can I recover the original file from the iNode file? When i scroll through the iNode files there is a thumbnail showing what the original file was, I just need a way to convert the iNode into the original file.

    Thanks in advance!
