Welcome to LQ. Not to scold, but while I'm sure the issue is important to resolve, it is not "urgent" to the LQ community -- everyone here is volunteering to try to help out fellow Linux users, and all questions have the same priority here.

Regarding your question, you might look into using foremost. Good luck with it
