    This situation is out of my league, but hopefully one of our file system gurus will come along with useful advice here. There is a real possibility that the disk space (where the files resided) will be overwritten anyway. Did you have a backup somewhere?

    i am not that guru, but until s/he comes along i advise hamad_morad85 to
    NOT use the /home partition where the trash can resides ..

    by that i mean do not even log into the system....boot to and use
    another operating system on the same machine *or* boot from a live CD
    and use it to monitor this thread *or* use a different machine entirely..

    exactly!

    to begin with the recovery of deleted files on a Linux system is not
    nearly as easy as using DOS/Windows "undelete" utility (because of the
    way the file system is designed) and at any moment the system my
    'decide' to start using the space where the "important folder" and its
    contents used to be...(past tense)..

    the fact is that it may already be impossible to get all of the data
    back....and each time you write _anything_ to that partition the chances
    of getting it all back decrease quickly...and, that is especially true
    if the partition is near full (here i define 'near full' as anything
    over about 80%)

    important: boot from a live CD to "pick up the data" you find...and,
    when you find it, copy it to a partition which does not contain /home/[you]/
