Thanks to everyone who replied especially Patrick O'Reilly, Jay Lessert
and Larry Anta.

Well the answer is No. The file has been removed and can't be retrieved.

But there is a utility available which recovers deleted file under Unix.
But is effective if your deleted file size is 20K -30K

Thanks to Patrick for this valuable info.

Here it is :

- unrm, Lazarus; tools used to recover deleted unix files (part of TCT:
the Coroner toolkit)

- surf to for instructions

Hope this helps.


My Original Question was :

I had 200M file which I wanted to move to a different location. I ran
the command "mv filename /test &" (in the background) By mistakenly I
ran the same command again (bash shell - pressed up arrow key and
instead of ^c pressed enter key) while the first was still running But
when jobs were finished and I checked the file & it was disappeared. It
wasn't there in source as well as destination folder. I don't have any
backup of this file. Have any one has experienced this kind of
situation? Can I retrieve this file??
