    undeleting

    I've accidentally overwritten a file with tar. And I'm trying to recover it, from what I've seen the only thing I can do on ext3 is grep the entire hardrive, however I'm not quite sure of the incantation to do this.

    Thanks Joe

    your best chance is probably using test disk from a live CD. RIP linux has test disk installed on it by default.
