Hello,

Recently, I formatted a FAT32 partition using makefs on Linux.  The drive is now in ext2 format and a few files have been written to it.  However, I realize I needed some files on the older partition, and I have been notified that there are some tools/commands available on Linux that would be able to restore these files or read them "raw."

Does anyone have anymore information on this issue or how to do it?  Sorry, I cannot offer more than 125 points.  It's all I have left.
