I'm not sure I understand what you mean here. Are you saying you deleted this file from your SD card, and that it was a copy of a file from your system? Are you asking how to recover deleted files? It looks like a firmware file for your wifi chip, so if you only deleted the copy on your SD card then it's presumably still around somewhere else. – eldarerathis May 11 '11 at 16:54
I'm going to assume OP didn't mean the root of the SD card, and instead meant the root of the filesystem. :) – Broam Jan 11 '12 at 14:28

This XDA post provides a Multiupload link, where you can download that file.

I have used the ASTRO File Manager. You should be able to use this free Android Market app to locate and manage all the root files. If you deleted this firmware binary file in the SD card, it probably is gone. I have not heard of any undelete app for Android.
