Recover data from ext3 file system


I have accidentally removed vmware virtual disk, my host operating system is RHEL5.2 with ext3 file system, i have used photorec, magicresue and foremost but still no luck to recover the vmdk file. i have seen in foremost configuration file that there are some predefined files (ex- doc, pdf, jpg, avi, zip, etc),
1. is there any way to add vmdk file extension on that configuration file?
2. if yes how can i do ?
3. by adding vmdk on configuration file, can i specifically use recover option for vmdk?
please help me to recover my virtualdisk

Thanks.

Chances are that if you deleted your vmdk file, then installed software to recover it you have overwritten it and it can not be recovered.
