This is off-topic for CVS, as there's no copy stored in CVS. Your only hope is to run an appropriate file undeletion utility for the partition type on your Linux box. I hope you haven't written any more data to that drive in the meantime, as there's a good chance you'll have overwritten the (new free) blocks containing your data if you have. - Peter
