Unhappy data recovery software

whats the best linux data recovery software?

the thing is ;

i ran a script in the wrong place and it had

rm -rf *

as a line in it.

when i got home i found that all my desktop icons had gone as had about 1gb of data from other files.

i have tried r-linux but lots of the files are reported as 0kb

any ideas?

I heard from a sys admin friend of mine that this is good. But its corporate software . . . Therefore you could get it for 89$. Guess it matters what you lost. They have a trial version tho. If it works for ya, and you really really want the data. I would recommend that.
