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 am fairly new to the Linux world but today I was trying to mount my USB drive in Linux Fedora Core 2 and it mounted twice. One it mounted once to a folder on the desktop (which is what I wanted it to do) and then it mounted as a sda1 device on the desktop. So I wanted to get rid of one of them so I deleted the folder icon. It ended up deleting the contents of my USB drive. I checked the "Trash Bin" and the files are not in there. I also double checked in Windows to see if the files were really gone, and they are really gone. Is there any way to get those files back? Is there someplace to look on the Linux hard drive to recover them? Is there another place they may have went?
If you haven't written anything to the USB filesystem, you might be able to recover your files by recovering from the cleared inodes. As pixellany recommended, Google is your friend. You might also try one of the forensic live CDs.
