    Tools? Maybe, but I wouldn't know.

    Make backups!!! I run a full backup once a week on my personal boxes.

    photorec

    I use Photorec for recovering files even after they have been formated EXT/NTFS. But nothing beats the backup.

    You can install foremost - Forensics application to recover data.
    Depending on the distro, try
    Code:
    yum install foremost
    or
    Code:
    apt-get install foremost

    Check foremost Manual here.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
