FREEBSD File Recover, and MYSQL Recover

One of our clients Var drive on their freebsd web server was completely deleted. All the mysql databases have been cleared. Is their a way to recover the mysql databases/data?

The version of Freebsd is 6.

No backups have been run. (shakes head) The company didn't instigate one.

Could you please advise and be as details as possible.

With Regards
Ashley

Not sure about that. Issue this command and tell us the output:

# df -T

The "type" column is what I'm after for that drive.

the file system is UFS, if you could tell me how to mount a windows share i could then image the disk with testdisk to the windows share and then recover the files that way.

look @

http://www.stellarinfo.com/disk-recovery/unix-bsd/bsd-file-recovery.php
I did a quick search for the Linux recovery software in the internet I came across a linux recovery software from Stellar named as "Stellar Phoenix Linux Data Recovery" they have BSD version too

normally, it is impossible to recover data(file) if you remove a file and someone creates a file after you removed it the best way is restore from backup(if exists) get  a good backup such IBM TSM tivoli or storix
