Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I ran "apt-cache search recover" and that returned a list of applications of which "e2undel" and "recover" seem to be useful for recovering data from ext2 filesystems and "testdisk" might be another useful program. Try "apt-cacche show e2undel", "apt-cache show recover" and "apt-cache show testdisk" to see if any of these utilities seem to fit for your purposes.
I have never myself tried to recover deleted data, so I don't know if this is possible or not. A google search for "recovering data" (maybe added with "Linux") or something similar might produce more useful information on the subject.
You should always backup all your important data. There's a new graphical backup utility, called "sbackup", available in testing and unstable, plus several command line backup tools.
There are tons of programs that can recover deleted data from hard drives, but as far as I know none of them are free or open-source, and I don't know how many would work with Linux. But I'm sure that it is possible, just as I'm sure that it's expensive, to do. If you took your data to a place that specializes in these things, they would do it for you, and probably charge a few hundred bucks.

Really??? can you please tell me if there is any commercial software which can do this thing. I have tried 4-5 evaluation version which are available but none of them even showed me the files(to be recovered, forget saving the files on another harddrive(which they claim to be available in full version))....I don;t mind spending few extra bucks to get my data back if I know for sure shot that the software will work.
