Hi,
accidentally I deleted a workfile from a Sony IC voice recorder, which I should type until tomorrow. I don't know, where can I find a data recovery software for Ubuntu.
Can you please help me?
Thanks a lot
Gabriella

Have you already tried retrieving it from your Trash Bin?

you can find it as a folder in your file manager, or in the trashcan icon.

Bring up Nautilus, labeled File Manager or Home Folder. Then navigate to the trashcan folder.
