there are software packages like "recuva" that will recover date, but to recover the entire partition is much harder. First how did he delete it and has he reformated, or installed anything to that partition

If he hasn't messed around with the partition, TestDisk might get it back.

You wont get it back because Ubuntu is now changing the partition and messed it. Next time, dont let your friend back on the computer. /facepalm

As above, If your freind has installed Ubuntu onto the PC rather than just using the test version, Ubuntu would have reconfigured the partitions as part of the instalation.

If they are just running it from live cd, there may still be hope.
