I've never heard of most of the stuff (OS, commands, etc.) you refer to.
how closely is this really related to web development?

sorry I can't directly answer your question, so instead, I'll spout

I think the real answer is to the file restore question is prevention.
anything else is a crapshoot at best, or will involve hardware-level
mucking about.

if you're making a living with this stuff, 
    * have a good backup. always. 
    * have a system of checks and balances between your development,
testing, staging, and production environments. don't cheat.

good preparation and exectution beats good 'fixing' skills every time.
