Help me recover a file


I used the rm -r <filename> command to delete a file. It was the wrong file. Its not in my trash bin. Where is it and how can I get it back?

If you're using ext2 or ext3 you may be able to get
the undelete from sourceforge, or use mc to "undelete"
it. But as a general rule of thumb, in Linux gone is gone :}


Cheers,
Tink
