[urgent] How to undelete a file

try ummm,

Getdataback or get a trail version of undelete (google data recovery tools).

some are dual (NTFS & FAT32/FAT) others are dedecated.
Getdataback *will/should* get the file back plus some info on previous partition wipes so look carefully.

undelete or uneraser are similar tools to the M$DOS toolset they will find deleted files as long as you haven't written anything to the partition as the 1st character of the filename is changed to a $ (i think) eg filedele.dok -> $iledele.dok (meaning file deleted ok) use the unerase / undelete program and you select the file, program asks for the 1st char bingo (with luck) file *is* recovered.

hope this helps.

Not really. The kernel still knows which inodes are used, but as 
soon as Totem closes the file, this information is lost.

It's close to impossible. Simply forge

Ah! That's an important information. With fat32, you actually might
have good luck. But I don't know a tool.
