so I lost a few days ago my NTFS partition during linux installation when I was partitioning.
Didn't find much info at google and have mainly tried to change partition type but not sure about details what I did.
But so here's print what 'fdisk -l' gives :
Disk /dev/sda: 640.1 GB, 640135028736 bytes
92 heads, 35 sectors/track, 388280 cylinders, total 1250263728 sectors
Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 * 35 48828079 24414022+ 83 Linux

/dev/sda8 282902795 375065599 46081402+ 7 HPFS/NTFS/exFAT
Partition I want access is (probably) /dev/sda7 but when mounting I got previously error something about NTFS signature but now after I changed type I can mount it and all I can see is 'lost+found' folder and thats all.
Also 'df' prints out next statement:
Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda7 88833164 57032 84263628 1% /mnt/shait
Making this case probably solved already since usage of disk is 1% thus making partition empty/formatted -- but I'm not sure if this is because of type changes I made or some other simple thing...
But ya, what I can do to possibly recover files / list of files I had there (don't need necessarily files, list is also good if files aren't recovarable).
Already tried 'scrounge-ntfs' but it doesn't work... and I'm running 'slackware 14.0'.
