General rant

This has happened once too often. Someone comes to me in total NBD and says he/she has deleted some file and needs it, otherwise it will be the end of the world as we know it. So I am just documenting stuff which should be tried out in such cases.
Disclaimer: What follows are just some things which I know. There may be better ways of doing things. Also, don't trust me. Read the partition table story ;-)

OK, so you did something bad...

Prevention is much better than cure
