Data Lost! Is It Possible To Recover?
I had a problem of lossing my data due to my own mistake. But the data what I lost is very important to me and so I am here expecting any one will help me out to solve my problem. This is a description of the problem.
I have two hard disks.IDE Primary Master is 40 gb, Secondary Master is 60 gb. On my first hard disk I have Windows 98. On the Secondary Master I had Red Hat Linux 8.0 /home partion of which was containing a lot of data.
Then I tried to install Mandrake 9.1 on the second hard disk thinking that
I have already taken a bavkup. I go on installing Mandrake on the second hard disk, repartioning and reformatting the previous partions. After installation I got that I have done a blunder since there was no backup taken On that hard disk.
Now I started searching internet for the recovery but most of the softwares i got which claims to recover data from this condition can do that only for Windows; I got a software called RTl.. for doing that thing in Linux but it supports only ext2 filesystem whereas I had ext3 . I found another software for linux and ext3 too but that is a commercial one.
I belive there must be some way out or some free software available to fix this and get my data back.
And I am here posting this to you hoping you will extend your kind help to
get my data back, in the reply mail.
thanks in advance to any help .
