With the hex editor, you have to modify the directory list in the partition table, (it's FAT, make sure ya modify both copies) There looks to be a couple how-to guides listed in Google... modifying a filename should be almost the exact same process as undeleting a file.

Thanks for all the suggestions so far. In fact, I downloaded a couple of free hex editors and tried this. No joy but that might be me not knowing what I am doing with them - it's been a while since I had to open up a disk with a hex editor and I never worked with the FAT before.
When I tried Nathan DeGruchy's suggestion about escaping the slash , I realized typing at this hour resulted in my reversing the slash - it's actually a forward slash. Sigh.
I did try Brandon Abell's idea about transferring it to another OS, but my ftp software was not able to send it up to our Web site host.
I have a feeling we'll go with the backup for this one, but I would still like to know if there is an answer... probably a throwback to my dissolute hex-editor-using youth.
