    There's a plethora of DOS tools and utilities (starting with the famous UNDELETE command) which will help you recover your files, just don't go writing ANYTHING on the drive. Get a live rescue CD dedicated to system/file recovery and good luck. You're lucky to have FAT32 -- if you had ext3, you migh as well say bye-bye to your 9 GB...

    Even if free software were ****, it should still get our preference over the non-free **** secreted by IT corporations.

    Actually you might be surprised at how much can be recovered.

    You can true Knoppix STD though it was old last time I checked. There is
    also Helix which might be able to help.

    I just had the exact same situation happen yesterday. I couldn't find any linux programs to undelete files from a fat drive. There are many free Windows programs that do this, and I ended up using "Undelete Plus" in an XP Virtualbox to get my files back. ("Recuva" also works well, but is also for Windows)

    If anybody knows of any linux-based file recovery/undelete programs please let me know. I find it hard to believe that that there are so many tools to do this in Windows and zero to do it in linux.

    I would suggest posting on one of the forums for distros specifically catered to this kind of problem - this is a candidate, although I have never used it, so can't tell you whether it works. Good luck.

    simple explanation: Linux programs are written by Linux programmers
    for the needs of Linux user's...and conversley, Windows[tm] programs
    are likewise made to fill a user base need ..

    the fact is that *real* Linux users don't click buttons without
    thinking/willy-nilly and thereby delete files they don't _intend_ to
    delete..

    so, there is no huge need for such recovery software...and, it
    therefore that very few such programs exist..[and those that do are
    NOT drop dead simple click click click to use...of course, i've never
    needed to try one...and, when i do i'll restore the file from my
    current *backup* image..]

    i guess the reason there are so many of those tools available for
    Windows[tm] clickers is now obvious to you?

    Come on, linux users don't do that....I'm glad linux programmers think that we're just as stupid as Windu's.
    I do know linux users who have the Shift-delete option (bypass trash-bin) as a replacement for Delete. Same goes for Windu's. And every once in a while i think i'd rather feed the hungry, than the backupless
