However, as to recover lost data... Dunno. Grepping on the entire device?

I've used Spinrite from Make sure you dont put data on that
partition before you try the recovery. If you have, there's nothing you
can do about the stuff you've overwritten.


There are several ways to try to recover the data.
It takes time, and effort. But alot of it can be restored.
But that is provided you DONT write anything on to it.
Stop using the disk at all. (Remove it from the system)

PM me and we'll discuss it further.
