Subject description: or in a save file?
 

I do not see any info about where the deleted files info is stored in the save directory. Confused (or a save file)

example: Lets say I wish to remove deleted file info from a save directory / save file
Where is that info located in the save directory/save file?

I do not wish to add anything to the save file, I want to remove deleted file info from the save file to restore the files to the running system.

I have to be missing something simple here.

It is files usually starting with this: .wh.*, though I would not remove them from the save file in use. I tried this once and it messed up the save file completely.

In BionicDog I renamed alsamixertray to alsamixertray-disabled and it returned a file: .wh.alsamixertray at the same location.

According to mikeb's post:

you should look in /root/.packages. I do not know more.

It depends. If the files that you delete are part of the base sfs or any loaded sfs files, these deleted files are recorded as white-out (.wh) files in the savefile but they are not physically deleted only hidden from view. Any other files under / that are not part of sfs files can be deleted permanently. This is because sfs files are read-only. Only way to get permanently rid of files in them is to edit and remake the specific sfs file.

Still playing with these, they don't seem to work on a full install.
