Recovering data from a formatted Linux partition.
Posted on 2003-11-20
I appear here today having done something silly. I have accidentally formatted (through a ClarkConnect install process) over a 40GB drive that had many valuable files on it. Can anybody recommend a good tool that will allow me to recover these files - at least some of them. I'm a desperate man and don't care just how much it costs.
It did have FreeBSD on it and I have tried using R-Linux and a tool from stellarinfo.com but both mainly report lost clusters or the new structure of Linux that CC loaded onto it. What are my chances of getting it back? As soon as I realised what I had done, I removed the drive from the system.
