    You can technically restore deleted files, but you need to be quick and shut down the machine.. if you are recovering from /

    Boot from a live cd that has ext3grep available or installable.. then or if you are not restoring data from / - you can unmount the partition use ext3grep - then its simply a case of

    # ext3grep --restore-all --after=1234567 /dev/sdaX

    1234567 = unix time, so only restore files deleted after that time and sdaX = the partition that had the data you need to restore. You can recover the whole partition by removing the --after

    This can work, but you do need to do it fairly quick, if you aren't experienced with file systems, I would pay someone to do it if its that important.
