ITP: recover and gtkrecover

   Recover automates some steps as described in the ext2-undeletion
   howto. This means it seeks all the deleted inodes on your hard drive
   with debugfs. When all the inodes are indexed, recover asks you some
   questions about the deleted file. These questions are:
     * Hard disk device name
     * Year of deletion
     * Month of deletion
     * Weekday of deletion
     * First/Last possible day of month
     * Min/Max possible file size
     * Min/Max possible deletion hour
     * Min/Max possible deletion minute
     * User ID of the deleted file
     * A text string the file included (can be ignored)
   If recover found any fitting inodes, he asks to give a directory name
   and dumps the inodes into the directory. Finally he asks you if you
   want to filter the inodes again (in case you typed some wrong

   GtkRecover is a graphic interface for recover.
