Fedora 11 installer deleted important NTFS partition, created new ext3 and installed
I've lost an entire partition with all my very important data on it.
I have two physical hard drives. One has Windows (80GB) and the other had my files (320GB - just on one volume, no partitioning).
I'm a Fedora fan, so downloaded the F11 Live CD and decided to install. I wanted to install it side by side with my files on the 320GB.
However I'm so accustomed to installing Fedora on new hard drives and VM's that I accidentally selected "Remove all partitions". It formatted and installed, and I used Fedora for about 10 hours total, downloading about a GB of data.
Then I realized what I had done, when I was ready to access some of the data I had on the 320GB. Booting into Windows I realized (through disk management) that the partition was gone; in fact only the /boot and main / file systems were there.
Based on the fact that I deleted the partition, formatted the disk and installed Fedora 11, would I be able to recover my data using disk recovery software? What should I use? I have good Linux and Windows experience, but I don't want to lose much data on trial and error.
Thanks in advance for any help,
