Thanks for your help.Matt You will need a miracle. Consider sacrificing virgins.Unix deletion tends to be irreversible.The filesystem aggressively reclaims space while defragmenting sub-20MB files on the fly, and tends to overwrite the former file locations, making data rescue near impossible. In rare cases of larger files or external volumes it may be the case that fragments are lost but enough remains to reconstruct a working file, but most data recovery work at this level costs thousands of $ and some grey hair.Sorry.
