Hey,

i deleted some stuff awhile back and havnt really touched or used the drive and now need it back, you know the story ;- )

After googling i found a heap of programs but nothing free :(

Anyone know of any free solutions for ext3fs? or something cheepish that works well?

Cheers

Nope... you can try grepping through the drive for text

ext3 only deletes the inodes not the data when it deletes files right?

becuase all these demo programs iv tested cant find any deleted data at all :(

This would delete all the filenames so you mean grepping for something that was in one of the files?
