Recover deleted files on Ubuntu
  

Hello People!

I have tried various methods and still no progress.

I had some very important files stored on ubuntu linux and the network with shared machines with Windows XP OS, these files are used to implement the NAF of ORACLE (various executables are customized to our requirements)

The question is that the folders located in "/home/user/srv/server/files naf" is no longer present and I need them back.

Friends please recommend, what can i do???

In advance thank you all the help they give me all your comments welcome, and I read enough on forums of linux and no use has helped me to my issue.

Thanks .-

You can recover incredible amount of information with Scalpel like utilities. Scalpel is a fast file carver that reads a database of header and footer definitions and extracts files from the of a set of image files or raw device files. Scalpel is filesystem independent and carve files from FATx files, NTFS, Ext2 / 3, or raw partitions. It is useful for both digital forensics and file recovery. You can install it by running following command in your terminal.

apt-get install scalpel

Run the following command in terminal to recover your data.

scalpel /dev/sda1 -o output
