Re: How to recover deleted files?
you could try a program called photorec. It is designed for photo recovery but it works for other filetypes as well. I would recommend that you do all of this recovery from the liveCD since any installation of programs or writing to the harddisk has a non-zero probility of overwritting your deleted files.
Desktop: Q6600 OC: 343 x 9, 4 GB RAM, 8600 GTS Twinview (22",17"), 1.5 TB RAID 5
Laptop: Lenovo T61 T7300 @ 2 GHz, 2GB RAM, Nvidia 140M Quadro, 160 GB harddrive
