Hello, is there a way to "undo" a prune I run for error? of course I don't have run garbage collector yet
no there is no such option. Your snapshot metadata and index files are gone, the chunks might still be there, but without the index file it is impossible to restore the data from them. Do you have an offsite backup? If so, you could resync the snapshots from there.
No, I don't have an offsite backup. I'm trying to do an "undelete" of the entire directory of the index files
Depending on your filesystem you may have something like zfs snapshots available?
