Recovering a deleted photo

Hi all

Ok, this is the situation. I had a photo of my gf's 8 week pregnant tummy, on a CompactFlash card. I MOVED it to my desktop but then I accidentally clicked 'Delete', so it bypassed the Trash Can.

Is there anyway I can recover this photo from either the CF Card or the HDD?

I'm guessing that the Compact Flash card was formated with FAT16 or FAT32 so windows could read it. If this is the case, you could find yourself a windows box, and try any one of the "free undelete" programs google lists for you.

I think would be easier than trying to undelete the file from your linux computer (EXT2, EXT3, ReiserFS, etc don't undelete well).
