Oops !!


I think I deleted a partition from a previous install, reinstalling over it, is there anyway to recover those ~10GB of data ? im not worried if I have to blow out my disk/partition in the process.

It won't help much, really. Not if the partition have been deleted, a new one created and written to. Then you're out of luck, at least unless you know of some magic trick I do not, that is.

Well, if the partition has only been formated and not written to, then there might still be some chance of succes but this is not how I understand the post.

After all, the difference between deleting or formating a partition is, well, rather major wouldn't you say? So what did you in fact do, bejiita, delete it or format it? It's really quite crucial.
