Restore an ext2 partition from a msdos partition


Hello,

I had an Ubuntu desktop 9.04. While I wanted to format my second hard drive with gparted, I have selected my system HD () with all my datas (/home, ...).

In fact, my error is I have selected to rebuild my partition table and now I have lost all partitions .

So, I would like to know how to restore my datas (if possible)

Thanks

Try to use some DataRecovery software, tried that yet?
Don't know any, cuz I never yet had to restore any data, always backed up before messing with partition table.
