Low level data recovery

Hi list,

I installed a iptables firewall + squid proxy on a client supplied box,
on ext3 filesystem. They just realised that box had data on. It used
to be a samba fileserver running on some version of FreeBSD -- I didn't
really pay attention when I installed linux.

So my question, is there any chance of recovering anything that was on
the BSD filesystem? The firewall has been running for a bout three
days, not very heavy use at all. Only about the first gig or so of the
disc has been used (squid cache, logs, ect), so hopefully the rest of
the 80 gig disc might yield something.

If recovery is possible at all, can anyone point me to the type of tools
I might need?

Thank you in advance
Kind regards
