Help with formatted drive.

Unread postby pablodiablo » Tue Dec 20, 2011 4:46 pm

I misplaced a drive, and instead of formatting one that was prepared to be formatted I did it to one that was just keeping some old stuff. I just used RO option in FX, nothing else, even not created a filesystem.

Is there any way to handle the disk like I could do it with TestDisk for rebuilding partition table, labels etc...

Just use fx to re-partition to the previous partition settings. There is a very good chance that you will recover your old data.
