Is there a way to recover deleted files from a hard drive after you deleted them from trash? i.e. i deleted everything on a seperate hard drive by mistake..

Thanks !!

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.
