    Exclamation Data Recovery [Damaged Parition]

    Alright here's the deal, I started a partition resizing operation with GParted and (obviously) it failed. Someone *cough* tripped over the drive cable (yes, its external) and disconnected it.

    So my question is, What do you recommend to recover the data? (the drive was completely full and I was expanding the partition)

    ddrescue not dd_rescue also you can use dd_rhelp to do the reverse option for you


    the new version of ddrescue supports what dd_rhelp can do ..

    Thanks but I actually solved the problem. I installed the "testdisk" package which scanned my drive and recovered the lost partition. Took about 2 minutes.

    I highly recommend it.
