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.

1) Depends on your desktop manager and how you deleted the file - in KDE (and Gnome, I think) hitting delete sends your file to the trash can. Holding shift and hitting delete deletes the file. Same as in Windows.

I mount my other hard disk windows partition at /mnt/multimedia. Then accidentally, delete the whole multimedia folder. More than 20GB of data ( My linux hard disk only 6GB ).
Went to trash can but found nothing?
Now trying to recover the data in windows but can't seems to be able to find the deleted files.
Originally posted by chii-chan If you deleted the files using 'rm' command and using ext3 fs, I'm think the data already gone beyond recovery. But if it is on ext2 fs, you can try your luck using /sbin/debugfs.
I deleted using the menu (right click delete). I'm on ext2 fs.
You can try booting to windows and look for free recovery program for fat32 file. I've used one that I already forget the name. But in my experience, if you delete files on fat32 from linux, it's gone. For unknown reason, the files cannot be detected by recovery program.
