ext2 or the second extended file system is a Linux filesystem designed as a replacement for ext. Note that ext3 is mostly compatible with ext2.
The SleuthKit and R-Studio can be used to perform recovery of data from the EXT2 filesystem. Various data carving tools like Foremost and Scalpel also support the ext2 filesystem.
