Hi, when you ignore a file in git it becomes invisible to git, so you can't
use git to try to recover it after a deletion.

About your question about git rm AFAIK it deletes the file and marks it to
the stage area. Anyway if you use git rm it means that you have the file
under git, so you can use git to recover it.

I remember, using git for Windows that some untraked files where deleted,
luckily it didn't make any damage in my repo.
I think you need to keep trying with file recovery utilities.
Good luck!
