Please don't mark your threads as urgent - it won't get anybody to react more quickly.

Also, have a look at the bottom of this page under the heading Similar Threads - this question has been asked many times. If the links below don't help, try using the search page here at

First, don't do anything that would write to the disk. The file should be recoverable--one of the threads gilead referred to will have more help.

working in a terminal (command line), there is no "trash" or "undo"
