Recovering data from formatted FS?


Ok, so let's say, hypothetically of course, that I did something stupid like.. oh.. mkreiserfs the wrong partition. Would it be possible to recover data from that partition? Let's say I haven't written anything to it either...

And let's say I tried reiserfsck --rebuild-tree on another partion, and now one it's really broken. Would there be any way to fix it?

Thank you very much.. I'll be sure to hold onto this information just in case a friend of a friend of mine happens to run into a situation like this!

hmmm, are you sure you didn't do this to yourself? i'll probably be corrected, but i'd say that person would be sol, but then again it might be possible depending on how much money you are willing to spend to get the data back, as there are proffessional data recovery services that could give it a go for a fee

well damn.. I didn't think anyone would catch on

Yeah, I basically figured on the sol.. but meh..

And thanks.. I used to be on LNO, way back in the day when Sensei was in charge. Haven't really been hanging around Linux BB's lately though.. haven't had the need, since I haven't had the time to mess anything up too bad.
