By the way, I use ext3. I fear that it is not possible to recover an entire folder from there, unless Krusader as some feature to undelete files it has just deleted. I was under the assumption that these files would go to the recycle bin, but apparently they do not

I dont know what Krusader is, but many GUIs send things to the trash vs totally deleting them. In FC5, I just tried something: On the desktop, I used the delete key and the file is gone (not in trash). If I right-click on the file, then there is an option to "send to trash"---but it does not seem to work!!! (Now I need to check my system..... )

If the stuff is really important, then I think it can be recovered---don't write anything lese to the disk until you figure out your next moves.

In the terminal (CLI), there is no trash.

Can't help you retrieve your files. You can configure Krusader to move files to Trash instead of deleting them. The option is available at Krusader -> Settings -> Configure Krusader -> General.

undelete software

You could try this.

http://www.r-tt.com/

However, I think you need to have a dual boot machine and boot windows and run it from there. I used another free utility once than ran from windows but i can't remember what it was called. It saved my data though. There are probably several free tools available.

If you do have dual boot, I suggest you boot windows now and don't run linux until you have recovered the data.

Good luck

Andy

I had the ext3 file system, so the tool you refer to does not work on that. I have accepted the fact that I am an idiot and my data is lost.
