I can suggest 2:
1.PhotoRec https://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/PhotoRec_Step_By_Step
PhotoRec recovers deleted files or lost data from a reformatted partition or corrupted file system.
To install it just open a terminal and run
Code:
sudo apt-get install testdisk
2. R-Linux https://www.r-studio.com/free-linux-recovery/
R-Linux is a free file recovery utility for the Ext2/Ext3/Ext4 FS file system used in the Linux OS and several Unixes. R-Linux uses the same InteligentScan technology as R-Studio, and flexible parameter settings to provide the fastest and most reliable file recovery for the Linux platform. However, unlike R-Studio, R-Linux cannot recover data over network or reconstruct RAIDs, or provide object copy.
Download the .deb file from its website and install. I've used both and they work great, testdisk might be faster, and R-Linux will allow to preview the files to recover before doing so, but it might be a bit slower at processing the data. I used "might" because it really depends on the machines resources; RAM and CPU capacity.
