1) Immediately shut down Raspberry Pi.

2) Make block-level image copy of SD card. Do not do the following on SD
card itself!

3) Mount a filesystem from said copy on a Debian PC (can be substituted
with any GNU/Linux PC).

4) Install testdisk on a Debian PC.

5) Run photorec as root on a filesystem from pt 3.

6) Consider doing regular filesystem backups in the future, preferably
automatic ones.
