    I deleted the file....

    Hello

    Often things happen and this time it happened to me ... I deleted a very important file on a ubuntu like platform. can someone provide wise way to fix this?

    I am running a Synology DS212+ which is basically an Ubuntu server with some smart layers on linux core (give and take).
    This is important as it means I cannot install any third party software (at least easilly)

    Could someone save my life helping to recover the losted file (18GB file).

    PS: FYI I did not do any backup so no need to go that route folks ))

    Oh My.. That is tough ! Linux assumes one knows exactly what one is doing...
    In this instance there are no easy options> Here is one avenue:

    And I have often seen "testdisk" recommended.

    what is - is

    I would also like to add that the more you use the computer after the file has been deleted, the more likely it is that it gets overwritten by other files. This is especially true for recovering large files and 18 GB is a very large file! I'm afraid it's rather unlikely that you will be able to recover the file completely uncorrupted.
