How does it work?
If the provided file path is located under a zfs dataset,
zfs-undelete searches all snapshots of the dataset in reverse alphabetical order for the file.
It will restore the first file it finds.
Reverse alphabetical order is equivalent to reverse chronological order (newest first) for snapshots from most auto-snapshot tools.
