STOP: if you havn't installed debian yet(I realize I am most likely to late) there is a program you may be able to use to retrieve your data, I am not sure what it is called, but if you search the forum, I had a post on here about this(I know, I asked the question, and then didn't use the answer.)

I found your post and it only looks like it only works on ext2 filesystems. The data he lost was on a Windows XP NTFS partition that he already had installed over...

Really?? Yeah, I guess Win would try to charge a lot for any program
to restore data on their filesystem - however, I was sure a friend
of mine had a program to do this on an NTFS filesystem, or was it just for FAT32??

I did find a commercial product called Disk Commander, but it seems to have been discontinued...

There should be something out there though,(legal or not) that you can use on NFTS to recover files, it doesn't really make sense(even for MS) that they wouldn't.

I did find a couple of other ones by googling "data recover reformat NTFS". I didn't find any free ones though. One that was about $200 seemed like you could even possibly recover data from a couple of reformats back...

Of course, I'm just looking out of curiosity, so I didn't search too hard...
