While setting up Time Machine over network for a Mac in the Office, I accidentally picked Bootcamp drive instead of the network drive as backup disk (the Mac is entirely set in Chinese, I was guessing I was picking the right disk and clicking the right buttons -- stupid, I know).
Anyway, long story short, TM formatted the Bootcamp drive (I guess it just changed the partition table info from NTFS to HFS+?), but no data was written on it yet.
Is there a way to recover the data (or more preferably, to convert it back to NTFS/Bootcamp without having to reinstall everything)? Could I boot a Linux livecd and just change the table from HFS+ to NTFS?
