The Zone - History

Hi mates,
I know The Zone is a (beautiful!) temporary filespace and files get deleted after a given amount of time, but in my opinion it would be VERY useful if all the Zone History would be recoverable...

I mean the three main fields: the uploaded filenames, the description, the guy who did the upload.

Would this be possible somehow?
To recover that data, related to all the past EAB years...

Heya Supamax,

On the EAB File Server you will find the following directories:

... TheZone/files
... TheZone/files/_2016
... TheZone/files/_2015
... TheZone/files/_2014
... TheZone/files/_2013

Unfortunately not all information you've mentioned is there; but the filename does contain whatever comments were added to The Zone! though.

Oh, as a side not I have loads of files which I grabbed from The Zone! from 2005 - 2009 before going AWOL...

I could upload these if people are interested?

Mind you I've run everything through TOSEC .DATs already and you can find this stuff under:

~Uploads/DamienD/NON-TOSEC [20-02-2016]
