Linux The ext3undel utility can recover accidently removed data on ext3 filesystems. Users can recover a specific file by name, or they can restore all files marked as deleted. ext3undel is a wrapper for other recovery programs such as Photorec, Foremost and SleuthKit.

I got a bit excited when I saw this and immediately went to work installing the script and it's dependencies. What I found is that it is entirely a crapshoot whether or not this thing will even be able to find the file you're looking for. More often than not, it didn't.
