Ran Ghost on wrong machine - need help recovering data

Hello -

Had too many laptops on my desk this morning; ran Ghost to do a re-image on the wrong notebook - killed the machine after about 15 seconds into the Ghost process.

I know I will have to rebuild this notebook due to my own negligence in the end... but looking for assistance on what I can use to assist me in recovering the users data. Ghost obviously killed the existing partition(s), so the disk now sees only the new partition table info. I don't think partition recovery is possible at this point, only raw data recovery......?

Looking for any utilities/procedures, certainly willing to pay for a good software app if recommended.... Thanks!

Hook up the drive as a slave to a desktop, and try GetDataBack from www.runtime.org - it is one of the best recovery tools.
You could try using ntfsundelete using a live Linux CD if the laptop had an ntfs partition.

Thanks guys...

FYI for anyone else finding this thread... GetDataBack is a great utility...worth every penny.
