I have accidentally deleted a folder with a lot of .myd .myi and .fro database files
The folder is /var/lib/mysql/peaceaus_drpl1
Now if you browse to /var/lib/mysql/ that folder no longer exists.
It's important I can undelete these files as it is the database for a website we have put a lot of work into.
Can you run some disk utilities and find my files.
I have $100 for this task.
Can it be done overnight.

Hello! I'm Unix/Linux Expert with more than 7 years experience. I'll try to recover your files but result can't be 100% guaranteed. Please stop using that partition and if it's not root partition please unmount it.
As long as you haven't restarted MySQL yet, this is possible and shouldn't take more than an hour (depending on DB size). If you've restarted MySQL already, you are probably out of luck.
