Recover Your Deleted Files

I have seen some questions about "How do i recover my deleted files in GNU/Linux?" Well, it's not a simple question to answer, since most of the time, your file isn't recoverable if you are using GNU/Linux. If you use ext2, you might have a chance to recover it by using third party tool. If you are using other file systems, you might want to read this article. He uses TestDisk and PhotoRec to recover your files. It's not guarranted that your files will be recovered perfectly, but at least give it a try. Please note that it's better to use other harddisk to try to recover your deleted files, or it will be overwritten by your other data and it will totally unrecoverable.
