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.

If you say to "move to trash" then you can just put it back. If you chose "delete" or "shread", good luck. There may be something out there but it will be blind luck. If you chose "shread" just forget and move on. I doubt there is any hope.
The answer really depends on how you initially deleted the file and how long you've waited to change your mind. If you did a simple rm from a command line, then you might be able to recover the file using one of those tools that checks the inode status. Unfortunately, if you've waited a while, they inode may have been reused. If you're deleted the file in a GUI environment by dragging it to a trash can, you can generally drag it back out as long as you haven't emptied the trash.
Your welcome. If I started using windoze I'd be in a forum looking for help. I'd also be pi$$ed because it always crashes. I have only managed to crash Linux once. I did a really stupid thing. I mean really really really stupid. I deleted the /etc directory. Stupid huh? Would have run until I rebooted though. Just can't mount anything I guess.
Glad I had that /home on a seperate partition. Thinking ahead that time.
Distribution: RH 6.2, Gen2, Knoppix,arch, bodhi, studio, suse, mint
the dos and windows fat filesystem is very simple.
it has a file allocation table(fat) at the beginning of the disk.
you can navigate it by hand with a disk editor. it's inefficiencies, and
simpleness are what makes it easy to understand and to do file
recovery. the more complex and optimized a filesystem is, the harder
file recovery is, unless the file recovery is built in, or some program is
running that handles it, such as instead of deleting files, moving them
to a "trash" directory.
i was going to type in how the fat filesystem worked, but i'm tired and
my girlfriend just brought me some pizza, so i guess i'm done.
