    Assuming your filesystem hasn't written over the sectors the file you deleted was contained in, sure, it should be simple to recover.

    Find a data recovery application and run it, they're rather simple and not free.

    Everything you write to that drive increases the chances of you not being able to get the file back, so write as little as possible to it. Writing nothing as all would obviously be the best option..

    Heh, had a guy delete something from his computer once. He ran a defrag first because he thought that would make it easier to find for the recovery program. :)

    i deleted about 160gb of tivo shows by accident once, it was an accidental format on the wrong partition.
    as soon as that happened, i pulled the drive and put it as a slave in my other computer. ran getdataback for ntfs on it, and got back about 98% of my data
    pretty damn good.
    checking out recuva....
