Re: file recovery - urgent

I did not catch what type fies you lost.  Some files can be recovered using 
some utilities I would have to look up.  I made the same mistake you did.  I 
deleted data that had not been backed up.  I was able to recover many files.  
I do not remember if it was reiserfs or EXT2/3 now.  If you have C code or 
similar text based files you can recover chunks (blocks) using grep on the 
raw device.  I have had to recover so code that way before.  Not fun but you 
can find many things if you have terms you can search for.  I hope this 
helps.  I will try to look up the utils I used before also.
