Talked about data recovery and how to recover files that are deleted. Normally, when you delete a file
under Unix it is very hard to recover the file. However, if the file is stored on specific filesystems the file
could be recovered.

Get Data Back for NTFS and Fat32
On the ext2 filesystem there are a few application to recover files:
recover – Undelete files on ext2 partitions
