Accidently deleted partition
I was installing Slackware 13.37 on my system that has separate '/home' (XFS filesystem, 15GB) partition. I wanted to leave that intact and was going to make a separate '/'. But I selected and formatted the '/home' with EXT4 to become '/' when asked by the installer. I'm so pissed at myself.
I used Fedora 15 live cd and I ran Photorec on lost partition, it recovered lot of files but not what I was looking for. I tried to run Testdisk too, but it was saying unable to create a backup file or something.
Also Photorec does recover from EXT4. So should I be looking for a utility thar recovers from a lost XFS partition?
