Thanks guys for the help. I found a beautiful freeware that help immensely called TestDisk. It can rebuild partitions, mbrs and mfts. It can find all these previous even if drive/part was formatted, but before any other destructive disk utilities
Only for the strong at heart in some places, and reading the accompanying htmls is a must (all linked included w/ package)
. SO, I hope this can be filed in your mental RPMs (or DEBs). Try it out and enjoy.
