Contact a professional recovery service? What if they’re clueless at Linux? On Windows Linux partitions are invisible, then you need to provide your own Linux rescue CD’s for them to fix for you.

If you absolutely need the data back, you should disconnect the drive immediately and contact a professional recovery service.

1. They're not, believe me, and besides

2. The OS/filesystem on the drive is actually completely irrelevant, as a professional recovery technician will be accessing the drive on a block level, using software like PC-3000.

Wait ... Software like PC-3000?? I’ve researched that PC-3000 is well known USB cards or PCI cards designed and tailored for professional hard drive recoveries thanks? And those ‘‘PC-3000 software’’ are its drivers thanks?
