I'm a newbie to the Linux world,although I've been always keenly interested to get to know more about linux and open softwares.
Recently due to Human error from my part, i accidently deleted all my partitions and the system has just a single partition now.Moreover there is no operating system to boot from.
I searched the internet and came across TestDisk and its capability to boot from a CD.I Downloaded BootMed, an ubuntu(10.10) varient.I followed the instructions from the website.Now the real Issue :
Initially after the Analyse, the software detected all my deleted partititons and when i selected one and pressed enter it said the partition cannot be recovered.And gave me an option for Deep Search.
The deep search initially began but with "read error count just as high as analyse cylinder count".
It took as long as 18+ hours yet the deep search count was 6%. I got frustrated and restarted system to restart the process but this time the whole process of - Booting up, Analaysing, Detecting - has become VERY Slow and the software seems to take hours to go to the next option.
Everytime I restart the whole process seems to be slower more.I'm confused and helpless and I have no backup of my datas.
Request you all to help me with this softeware or any other methods.
