Is there anyway to recover files on the PS3 that have been deleted and not backed up? If I connected the PS3 via usb to my computer and ran a file recovery program, would it be able to search the PS3's file structure?

No because the PS3 file format cannot be read by Windows, Windows will just say the **** needs formatting, that's if it reads it at all. If you installed Linux and used a file recovery program that might work but I doubt it because once you start adding things to the HD it overwrites the deleted files.

But why can it not be read? I can recover files from a memory card, phone and psp fine. What file format is PS3 anyway?
