I am using a website’s service saving some plain text (html) public content, was choosing this website because they claimed saved all content in IPFS, and gave me the QmHash for each content I shared there, it served well until recently this website released a newer version software which has a BUG causing truncated file to replace original content, the original content was shared on 2020-11-18 and it’s still there in the IPFS they have pin’ed (because they claimed pinned all IPFS content never delete any of those), and the truncating content problem happened the next day, now this website is only telling me the revised (truncated) version’s QmHash to me, which has only part of the original content I shared there
If I have access to that website’s IPFS server’s local disk, I should be able to do full disk search via Unix tools like grep to search some unique keywords from the content I shared, but this website is not willing to give me access to their server
I have tried the public https://ipfs-search.com/#/search but it has very poor search quality, many of my publicly shared content existed for months years, can be accessed with QmHash via any IPFS gateway but from ipfs-search if search by title or any keywords, the ipfs-search almost always gives Nothing found
Wonder any other way can search the lost QmHash with part of content, from the truncated content, to get the first version of my content? I am sure it still exists there in IPFS, just lost QmHash,
and I know the original revision was put on IPFS on the day 2020-11-18, and can be further narrow’ed down to a particular hour, does this help to find it out?
it is fully plain text in html format, and I have almost first half of the content
