Hello all, I've come here obviously because I'm in need of some advice from you Linux experts.
I had a dual-boot system setup. Win XP Pro w\ Ubuntu 9.04 and my bootloader of choice was grub.
I recently made a mistake - I totally forgot about one very important folder on my Ubuntu installation and reformatted and reinstalled my injured Windows partition. Quickly realizing my wrong doing, I was immediately relieved to have come about the idea that I could throw in my Ubuntu disc, at which point it would probably detect my Ubuntu filesystem and restore my installation.
Stupidly next, I left my computer for a day with my non-password protected screensaver(fresh installation), and my nephew came into my room to try to play a video game in Windows and somehow(?!?!) managed to it appears quick format my Ubuntu partition in Windows.
My questions is, is it possible to recover my Ubuntu installation, and if not, does anyone know how I would go about recovering that folder? I've done it in Windows but am definitely not a Linux wizard.
Thanks in advance for any assistance you can provide
