Was installing Gentoo last night and it hung in the middle. I wasn’t thinking and let it drop one of my partitions on a separate hard drive for the /swap. Now the partition tables on that hard disk are gone (80 GB disk).
I used dfsee (www.dfsee.com) and it tells me the partition signatures are still there. I could not figure out how to rewrite the partition table with it, however.
Is there any tools that can do either of the following (linux preferred)
a)rewrite the partition table so that its like nothing happened
b)recover the files from the ruined partition to another drive
any experiences welcome
