Hey, use your Drive manufacturer's own recovery tools, they'd work! But they're for Windows alone. Check the respective websites.

Open nautilus in root mode:

Code:
gksudo nautilus
I hope you can proceed after that, all mounted stuff will be under /media .. :)

i really dunno how the root nautilus didn't allow you to delete file. jus right click on it and check the permissions tab in properties as root. change if required.

regarding compiz, trevino's has the most up to date packages (currently 0.5.5). i guess amarnath's repos haf 0.5.2. dunno why but amarnath's repos never worked for me.
