Hi all,

there was a mandrak linux installed in my pc , but yesterday it hanged up 3 times ( I don't know why )
so today I've tried to install it again on the previous installation , I found that all data on the linux partition was removed.
the linux partition was containning VERY SERIOUS DATA.

I heared that formated data can be retrieved again using a linux tool , but I don't know how.
please if any one knows something can help me, please send.

Mano

Recovering lost data is not a easy task in linux.
What type of filesystem are partitions ext2, ext3, reiserfs etc.
Did this previous installation use the same partitions?
If so did were they reformated during the install?

I've installed linux on only one partition of the HD, its fromat was ext3

while installation , I haven't been notified that the partition will be formated.
I wanted to install it over the previous installation (I thought it won't destroy the entire partation)

I got two messages concerning this:
1-telling me if I want to cut a part of windows partitions to install linux ( this message was with 4 options which I don't remember) I selected the first option ( I've read the four options and I decided that the first is the suitable one)

2-after that, it told me that linux will be installed on "hda9 .................ext3........." , I've selected OK
then the process went on.

You can search for ext2/ext3 recovery tools
Here is one:

If you installed to the same partition what directory was the important data?
