I once formatted a drive by mistake and it was an external one, it took me 4 days of 24/7 to get all the data back but i got it all. Hard mistake to learn from though

It wont take me more than a few hours so I will just knuckle down. If you look at my first post you will see that I also used G parted to create a partition, well that took 4 hours and it would have only took less than an hour using the instalation disk.
