I am looking for a way to recover data off a perfectly good external HDD. Not a problem usual.
The drive was being used as a backup drive for computers that I was working on during a reformat. Several problems occurred during my instillation of windows drivers. So I decide the best action was to reformat the computer again with Linux to wipe the the windows install so that I could start again. During this process instead of wiping the computer hard drive it wiped and installed Ubuntu to the backup drive.
Dose any one have any tools that can help me retrieve the original data from the drive.
The drive was formated with and NT file system before I backed up the data and was reformatted to and ex3 file system after the Linux installation to the drive. If that makes any difference.
I know Win Image will allow me to image the drive and see what is on the drive but am unsure if it will let me carve for information or write information to the sectors to try and rebuild the original NT file system.
