Default Deleted file marker

Is there a marker to indicate a deleted file in EXT3 similar to FAT32's E5?

Thanks

Kevin

It is generally a good idea to ask questions at a higher level unless you
are interested in exactly that information.

One might guess based on your question that you are really interested in
recovering deleted files and not the specific structure of ext3 file systems.
If that is the case, then you might want to take a look at ext3grep, which
is packaged for Fedora.

If you are interested in - how ext3 file system handles deleted files - ext3 doesnt have special indicator to represent deleted files.
If you interested in recovery,then as* Bruno suggested try Carlo woods "ext3grep" which uses journal to recover files.
