comment data recovery from deleted partition
Make a complete backup image of the whole disk immediately before you do anything that modifies the contents of the disk! If you try something and it fails, you can "reset" from the backup image and try something else.

comment LibreOffice/OpenOffice vs. MS-Office
I believe OOO/LO have support for macros, but they may not be fully compatible with MS Office. The best way to decide is to just try it on your own macros and see if they work.

comment How do I permanently turn the volume up on a wav file to use it on my phone?
Well, it's not magic. If your sound file is too quiet, then there may simply be too little information left. You could compare it to an underexposed photograph that you try to restore by turning up the brightness.

comment How can I find out about an unknown file extension?
I was assuming that most methods would be OS-agnostic, but that does look useful. Why don't you post it as an answer?

comment How can I find out about an unknown file extension?
The file command attempts to identify a file by testing the beginning of the file against a set of patterns for known file types. If it matches one, it will report the file type. Useful when it works, but there are lots of esoteric formats that it doesn't know about yet.
