Afaik, that's not possible, unless you have a backup of your .ssk folder.

I pasted the contents of the public key file into some servers
(authorized_keys2), so I can
ssh to them without being prompted for a password.

Now, I cannot ssh to these mecahines.
Is there anyway I can recover the old keys I had ?
Running "ssh-keygen -t rsa" does not solve the problem unless I **again**
paste the nre gernerated key into the new machines.
