The Fat filesystem does not have an easy way to undelete files.  Fat
file undeletion software uses data carving techniques.


If your drive is small, you can use foremost or photorec to data carve
the files out.  If the drive is very big and you don't want to sort
through a lot of recoverd files (it won't differentiate between intact
and deleted files), you can use the "dls" tool from The Sleuth Kit to
make an image of the unallocated blocks, and then recover from there.
