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 having inspiron laptop 1545 with win vista, win 7 &Ubuntu 12.04.2
i had downloaded some pdfs (50) from internet. I wanted to rename the filenames with the headings of each document. Now linux allowed me to copy the headings and then paste it on the filenames. <b>but windows showed me error </b>. As linux allowed doing this copy the& paste, i went ahead and renamed all the files in folder & subfolders. Some files i remember to be saved with the\ and / in the filenames.The filesystem in which these files were present was NTFS.
After this i booted in windows & the files were missing. Thinking that the problem was more of errors in HDD, i did run chkdsk onto the file system. But to no avail. Still files were missing. After that i ran a registery cleaner software. This software showed me lots of invalid entries corresponding to all of these files. But i did not delete these entries.
Thinking that the files were permanently deleted, i ran a file recovery software called R studio. But it was also not able to recover those pdf file.
Maybe you should give us an (approximate) example of the actual commands and data you used? Because I'm not getting it. Also what does 'ntfsls -aFfilRsv /dev/your_NTFS_partition -p /path' return? (Note "/path" is the path where the documents were or are located. So if it for example was your desktop directory you should use something like "/Users/ntu929/Desktop".)
