Recover a deleted file in suse linux

Hi Dear all,

I am using suse linux 10.1 and i wrongly deleted a 700MB directory from my server using 'rm -rf < dir name >. The data is so critical and i need to recover it there's no backup also.

My box is configured with under Raid 1 Sft.Mirroring with two sata
hard disks with reiser file system.

Is there any way to recover the files Pls help me

Thanks in advance

first rule: Don't do anything that would cause a disk write.

The most commonly recommended tool is "testdisk", but I have no personal experience with it.

If the data is **really critical** and you don't have the patience or skills to tackle recovery, then get the drive(s) to a professional service.
