comment Recover just deleted scanned pdf without unmounting
Actually, pdfinfo found about 50 files, so I had to open it manually. But the one file I was looking for wasn't between them. I'm not sure if I can trust this tool (scalpel). Maybe this answer is worth accepting, but I would like to recover the file in the end.

I know the creation date of the original file yet, if it helps.

@user454038 It is scanned without OCR. I don't know if scalpel do some ordering.

btw. your command does not narrow the results to scanned documents.

This finds hundreds of scanned files. My pdf file is output of simple-scan application, so I guess according to the size of similar scanned documents, that the resulting file should be (6 pages) 354K +/- in size. If it would be possible to add some switch to the grep command that will narrow the results yet.
