I'm facing with the following problem. I have an Ubuntu virtual machine running with virtual box and I've accidently deleted some files from ubuntu .

I've googled for some tools that can aid me in recovering my lost data and came across R-Linux which seems fit for the job, unfortunately R-linux runs from an windows host. My question is ,is there a way to run R-linux for my ubuntu virtual os

If you're talking about system files, and you did the smart thing and created a separate /home partition, you can just reinstall without worries. If not, you can backup the /home folder to a different virtual drive.

If you're talking about actual documents or videos in the home folder, check out this Ubuntu Guide.

I don't have much experience in git, but I'm guessing that's it's no more than a folder. The guide above should work. – digitxp Aug 24 '10 at 20:03
