UNDELETE command

The UNDELETE command restores deleted files.

     Erasure of Deleted Files

          Ordinarily  an  UNDELETE  command  given  during  the   same
          terminal  session  as  an original deletion will recover the
          deleted files, unless you included the EXPUNGE subcommand to
          DELETE  or  gave  a subsequent EXPUNGE command.  However, if
          any user or a batch job  logs  out  while  connect  to  your
          directory,  all deleted files are permanently erased.  Also,
          if available disk space is low on the system,  the  operator
          or  the  system  itself  may  expunge  all deleted files.  A
          system warning message is usually sent before this happens.

Special Cases

     Restoring Files Deleted With CONTENTS-ONLY Subcommand.

          Any files deleted by a DELETE command with  a  CONTENTS-ONLY
          subcommand  are  immediately  expunged.   You  must  use the
          RETRIEVE command to restore these to disk.
