What file type whas it?
On what filesystem: ext3/ ext2/ xfs/ reiserfs ?

I suggest that you make a copy NOW of /proc/kcore into your home directory for further analysis. Its a copy of your memory.

(don't hope too much ..)

Forgot sthg
Don't copy the kcore file on the same filesystem where the file was deleted!!
To be sure, try to unmount the filesystem where the file has been deleted.
