Subject recovering data from an unfinished compaction db
Date Sat, 22 Sep 2012 09:56:04 GMT

I have a .couch file where compaction hasn't finished its job and
we've lost the pre-compaction production DB file (an unfortunate
sysadmin error). Running CouchDB 1.2.0, so the new, corrupted file is
in disk format version 6, with snappy compression.

I've tried using recover-couchdb
(, but it crashes with the
message that disk format 6 isn't supported. I've also tried dropping
in 1.2.0 sources, but that also didn't work.

Anyway, any hints on how to recover the data? 180GB file, lots of attachments.

Many thanks!
