Data recovery


I installed Linux after XP.
C unit to be converted to /home/ 15 GB
ext3 7 GB
swap 1.2 GB
D unit was left unchanged(The recorded data were important)

But once i tried to recover XP. And it was recodered to D unit. All data disappeared.
And Ubuntu 8.10 initialize this Unit as ACER ,msdos file system

Is there any ability of data recover on D?

I'm having trouble understanding what happened. You're sure all data is gone? Is there still a partition there? Is it just that Linux can't see the files? Or is it that you can't boot to XP any more? What distro are you using?

the main problem with Files on D: .

I made mistake with the recovering Windows system with the help of acer recovery panel.
Before this action of recovery, there were data on D:.
But after ,Linux system can't see them. And i have Windows to be installed on D:. The file system of D: Fat32.
it was Fat32 before any manipulations with data.

testdisk program, designed for data recovery hadn't help me.

The "Acer recovery" application probably tried to restore the system to a re-configured, factory state and it probably doesn't (want to) know about MBR, Partition Table or other customisations.

Unfortunately that line does not hold any information. You can run 'testdisk' as 'testdisk /debug /list /log >/dev/null 2>&1;' to save partition information (kinda like 'sfdisk -l') in "./testdisk.log". Posting that kind of information might help. If it doesn't, run 'testdisk' like you would to try and recover partition information but use the "/log" to save any information to post.
