Restore it from your backups? You have a backup, right? Important stuff being backed up is quite normal.

A usb stick? Dropbox? etc....


Thanks for your attention.

Yes, I do have backup but that is about a months old.

So, restoring that will be a loss of about a month's data.

Any other solution please.

You may be able to use foremost, you will need a writable storage of equal or greater size than the partition which held the file, you will 'restore' every file currently on the partition as well as deleted files, if the area on the disk. You will lose file name and folder location of the files but you may get the data. This is only a read process so the source disk is unchanged.

If the area of the disk, which held the file, has been overwritten in use since the removal then the file is irretrievable.

I suggest you re-evaluate your backup procedure, it is clearly not appropriate

Thanks for your kind advice but unfortunately it doesn't solve any of my purpose !

It doesm the file restore bit...using foremost which I mentioned in my last post. It may restore the file. Otherwise it's gone.

Can you help with this problem?
