how to recover (at least part of) a deleted file? - FreeBSD

Hi I have a 5.3-REL-p5 system and I accidently deleted an apache log before processing it. I would like to recover as much as possible from it. I have been looking in the sysutils ports and Googling but have not come up with a way of doing this. What is the best way to attempt to recover a lost file or its contents, or as much as possible of it??? Thanks Chad...

    And in case it matters, what happened was

    I mv'ed the file to a different name and created a new log file.

    ie

    % mv access_log access_log.20050309; touch access_log

    I restarted apache

    I then accidently did the move again so it replaced my previous saved
    copy with a new smaller one.
