How to recover a removed file under linux
Undo an “rm -rf ~” command?

I deleted a newly created C file from my system. My assumption was that I did a svn commit. But I forgot to add the new C file to svn repository. And surprisingly it did not give me an error. My problem is I tried the recovery suggested using init 0 and grep but that doesn't seem to work. Is there any way at all that I can recover the C file? Any help would be much appreciated.

This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

Is this a generic file recovery question, or something more specific? – soandos Aug 2 '11 at 23:20
Depends on your file-system. I remember reading that an alternative file-system (ReiserFS?) is able to undelete files. You don't give us your file-system, so there's no way to be sure if recovery via using the file-system is possible. – new123456 Aug 3 '11 at 0:19
When this is all over, please consider using a revision control system. And/Or a configuration management system. – richard Jul 27 '14 at 20:39
