Windows 7: Restore files after accedental partiition deletion

12 Apr 2012   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate X64
Restore files after accedental partiition deletion

Heres the deal:

2 drives:
1TB WD where all my files are
120 OCZ SSD were I load my O/S from
I was quickly going thru the motions of installing windows and got to the part about where I wanted it. I deleted the entire partition table in both of my drives. Quickly realizing what I did, I backed out of everything. went back into setup and the partitions are still gone. Boot up into linux live CD, no partition. What is the best way to get my files back that are on my WD drive?

The WD drive was previously EXT3 format prior to deletion..

Any suggestion is appreciated as I have years and years of archived files on this drive!!!
