I delete folder from trash folder by mistake, but I want to retrieve it? I am using Ubuntu 14.10 is there any way to retrieve it again How can I do that?
First, you should stop using the drive or partition.
Next, login from another partition, or from a live disk and have an extra flash drive handy to transfer the lost data to.
Finally, you can use photorec to recover different types of files. To install,run the following commands:
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install testdisk
Then, run the following command to start photorec:
For more info on how to use, run:
Note: use the USB to store recovered files to. Do not use the drive you are recovering from to store recovered files.
Other tools to look into (that I have not used):
ext4magic - recover deleted files from ext3 or ext4 partitions
autopsy - graphical interface to SleuthKit
scalpel - A Frugal, High Performance File Carver
sleuthkit - tools for forensics analysis on volume and filesystem data
For a complete list, run the following command:
apt-cache search forensics
You can use some applications able to scan file tracks from partitions like test disk.
