I think I just royally screwed up. I have a USB hard drive that I was using to backup my data from a laptop before I reloaded WinXP. In the process of the reload, I accidentally delete the partition that is on the USB drive. Normally I would not be so upset about a few lost documents or emails but I actually had pictures from my wedding and honeymoon on the laptop that were backed up. I know Linux has the data dump command and was trying to use Knoppix for that to recover the data but it says that it does not recognize the file format or it has not been defined.
I'm failrly new to Linux so I wanted to throw this out there to see if any of you experts could help me out. Is it even possible to get that data back? Could someone give me some insight as to how to get it back if it is? Please help!!! My marriage depends on it. (Not really but it would be nice to get the pictures back)
