Resources re undeleting files. There are no guaranteed ways, AFAIK, to recover a deleted file. In all cases, one key to undeleting files is to stop using the disk, so that no other files overwrite the ones you are trying to recover. Since Linux is a multitasking multiuser operating system, you may have to shut the system down or unmount the partition in question to prevent overwriting.

See AboutThesePages.




See ResourceRecommendations.


Also, I understand:

  • These procedures might work on ext3 filesystems (and others???)
  • mc (Midnight Commander) has a command to undelete ext2 files

  • DOS unformat may work on FAT16 as long as you didn't do an unconditional format (/u)
