Do we have any tool or application that can enable the feature in linux to restore the data/files that are deleted.

Like in windows all the deleted files/folders goes to recyclebin.

lost+found is not a suitable option.

In windows when you delete the file it doesn't really delete it, it moves it to the recycle bin.  Moves, not deletes.  If you are running a GUI like KDE or GNOME and you delete a file, same thing, it has a trash can that isn't really a delete until you empty it.

Deleting from the command line in linux is just like deleting a file from the DOS prompt - it really gets deleted.  If you want to recover you have to run a filesystem recovery program.

Lost-and-found isn't meant, and doesn't function, like a recycle bin.

If you have crazy users working remotely that are deleting files you might write a script that moves a file to something like /recycle-bin, and then move the normal rm command to rm.really-delete and put the script in its place.
