    Recovering a ReiserFS Partition


    I had a ReiserFS partition that was formatted EXT3 by mistake. As far as I know there hasn't been much data that has been written over it. Is there a way to save what is still there?

    Thanks!

    TestDisk might be able to recover it for you:

    TestDisk - CGSecurity

    TestDisk is included with lots of LiveCDs such as the PartedMagic LiveCD:

    TestDisk appeared to do the trick. It looks like all the stuff that I care about is still on the disk. Thank you for your help!
