I wonder if anyone can help me I have been working on a perl script on a vyatta (debian based) router.
I foolishly saved the script to the /tmp folder.   When i have rebooted this file has been auto deleted
because of it's location.

Is there a way which i can recover this file?

many thanks

If /tmp is memory-based (using tmpfs filesystem), there's no chance to recover the file.

If it's not, it's still very hard.

You have hardly any chance to restore it. But if you are using ext3 you can try that
