This isn't really an Ubuntu issue. Start with the UBCD .iso file (, and report back on what you want to achieve specifically with Ubuntu .. – david6 Sep 1 '12 at 8:22

There are some paid recovery tools such as R-studio for linux would be perfect

+1 for r-studio. And they also have a free version – blade19899 Sep 5 '12 at 13:17
@blade19899 Thanks so much i like it. R-studio is perfect but i was searching for other tools to see other choices but it seems no choice to replace it. – user61928 Sep 5 '12 at 13:26

you can also try pmagic with is a small iso you can write on a usb key or cd and which contains many tools, it's all graphical as it uses kde and you can run clonezilla for backup. This is what I use personnaly and it perfectly works, you can backup your system disc to another disc, another partition or to a server.

It seems you misunderstand me what i need is recovery tools (tools that restore deleted or lost files) not backup tools and as you know pmagic contains backup tools and other that could help in recovery cases but they are not recovery tools. – user61928 Sep 3 '12 at 8:45
