    Hi,

    I have landed into a big mess. I was trying to install Manadrek Linux
    on my desktop that had 2 hardisks. One had WinXP(HDD1) and the other
    had some Linux version(HDD2) which i wanted to remove.I disabled my XP

    hard disk and installed my linux on the other one. After the
    installation i realized somehow even though i had disabled my XP hard
    drive Linux formatted my XP hard drive(HDD1) instead of Linux(HDD2).
    Now, all my data is gone since i also used that hard drive to backup
    all my data recovering the data is extreamly important.
    Can someone please help me understand, is there a way to recover my
    data(as linux has created partions on it) and if yes, then what are the

    possible options and steps?
    Any suggestions about a good data recovery software would also be
    extreamly helpful.
