You may also want to check out libtrash. I haven't tried it, and don't know how well it works. I will not help you with your present dilemma, though. It is supposed to create a recycle bin type of folder where things are moved to when they are deleted.
Thanks ogmoid for your post. What little I have seen on undeleting in Linux made me think that there was no easy way to do it. I think this project only applies to ext2 (and probably ext3) filesystems though.
In theory, it is possible to recover the data, since when you delete the file, all you delete are the inodes and stuff at the filesystem level, not the data itself. It's still there. You can use unrm or access your hd on windows and use Acronis Data Recovery on the linux partition. If the data is buried very deep in the magnetic multilayers of the HD, then you will have to use scanning microscopy to recover the data, and there are professional data-recovery companies that do so.

Yeah, you'd better run!
I almost always spell check my posts. The checker kinda misses that one though. You can feel free to have some lighthearted humor at my expense, just be aware that some others (even here at lq) are easier to offend.
