data recovery under Fedora10


Hi, All


Yesterday, I installed Fedora10 on my PC which is installed with winxp before. TOday, I forgot that there are some important files on my old winos. But I have format disk with ext3 because I installed fedora10.
I wonder whether there is a way to recovery data on my winos before.

Kindly please advise.
Thank you

Please write clearly, it's very difficult to understand your question.

If you formatted the disk, your files are gone. You went from NTFS to ext3, rewrote the partition tables, and wrote a new OS to the drive...that's it, everything's gone. You need to restore from backups, or send your drive off to a VERY expensive data-recovery specialist, and they *MIGHT* be able to salvage SOMETHING....but only maybe.
