    lost partition


    Hello,

    I was not enough careful during the upgrade to fedora 12 what caused that the new partition table (installer's default) was generated, which is of course completely different than I had before. I stopped the installation, but don't know if there is a way to recover data from the disk? The best solution would be to recover the old partition table (or at least the old partition with /home directory where I have a lot of important data). Is there any hope for me?

    Thx for any suggestions!

    Welcome to the forums!

    The best tool that I know of for recovering the partition table is TestDisk:

    TestDisk - CGSecurity

    You can find it on the Parted Magic LiveCD and other live disks.

    Good documentation for using TestDisk is available on their own website.
