See the http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Image:Wikify.svg. The description page is avaiable, but not the image itself. There is no deletion log avaiable, only upload log. If I go to the restore interface, the software shows two file revisions able to restore. But if I try to restore I get the following error message:
missing source file '/mnt/upload3/private/archive/wikipedia/commons/0/k/5/0k5hg5jrjd87zpwackyhdlzjb56zj8n6.svg'

Presumably an issue with the new file backend, so I'm assigning to Tim.
Possible clues may be in http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Village_pump#Missing_images
Steps to reproduce:
1) Upload an image to Commons.
2) Edit the image description page on a different wiki.
3) Delete that description page.
The image file will be deleted.
Setting highest possible priorities. This endangers all Wikimedia wikis.
Tim fixed the essential bug in r22718, so it won't happen anymore.
"Lost" files should be recoverable, just sitting in the wrong wikis' archive directories, so we'll try and work that out pretty soon.
(Reducing priorities now the actual bug is fixed)
Is there any need for users to continue posting identities of missing images to the Commons Village Pump section http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Village_pump#Missing_images ? Thanks!
No, but it doesn't hurt.
The images which can easily be recovered have been recovered. The images which are still missing are:
In some cases I've made notes on the image talk pages or attempted to contact the uploader. These images are still on the server, the problem is that finding them would be a difficult and time consuming task. I'll consider requests to recover particular images if the image is important and another copy cannot be found.
Most of the above have been restored now by a search for matching files, except:
I'm doing another pass since I think my last check got cut off early.
All four of those files are still missing. :(
The first two files were 'Deleted because "Missing license/source/permission information".' Stop_hand.svg and Wipermail.jpg appear to have been restored. Status is 'RESOLVED FIXED'.
