How to recover deleted file?

Hi All
By mistake i have deleted some file in a directory, is there any way to get it back in Unix( i am using sh )

I believe NO! Smilie

Now I suppose no more other than by restoring from a backup... Things would have been different if you noticed your mistake within seconds ( but method is not for novices... without guarantie...and has to be really important for it to worth the trouble you will have...)
