Deleted a File via KNOPPIX Boot Disk -HOW to UNDELETE IT ???

Specs: Win 7 Professional, Intel
I have a WIndows XP Hard Drive with usual files.

I booted the computer using a Knoppix Boot Disk.

It works great for navigating, copying, etc...files on the HD (using the "Lightweight X11 Desktop Environment)...

I deleted some files (while in this Desktop Environment) by mistake.

BUT...I can't find anything that looks like a trash can / trash folder (or any way to undo...or undelete what was just deleted )

I checked the WINDOWS recycle folder...but that only has the stuff deleted when booted into Windows.

There MUST be some way to UNdo what I just did.......(like undeleting a file that was just deleted)

Am I missing the obvious?

Any suggestions appreciated.
-THANKS

When you "delete" a file in Linux, you usually have the option to "move to trash" or "delete". If you select "delete", there's usually a popup warning that the file will be permanently deleted. You may be able to retrieve the file by using Recuva:

testdisk or photorec or other undelete/unerase program

Only a slight chance the disk created a linux trash can on that drive. I think it shows up as .Trash or something like that. If it did then I'd think booting to knoppix again might show the file in that trash. I kind of doubt it but it is worth a try.

Katy Perry, I'd never treat you badly.
