File recovery from ubunto - anyone? - Ubuntu

Hi, We have an Ext3 disk where a multi-gigabyte file was overwritten by a file with zero bytes with the same name. Anyone having some good clues to recover the original file in this situation?? Does it exist tools for file recovery / inspection running under Linux ? I'm used to these challenges under windows, but I have no experience with Linux. best regards Geir...

    Hi,

    We have an Ext3 disk where a multi-gigabyte file was overwritten by a
    file with zero bytes with the same name. Anyone having some good clues
    to recover the original file in this situation??

    Does it exist tools for file recovery / inspection running under Linux ?

    I'm used to these challenges under windows, but I have no experience
    with Linux.

    best regards

    This utility might also be useful:

    Good luck,
