While installing Ubuntu 11.04 I was asked to choose a swap area for better performances, so I chose my 1T hard drive(which had only one partition).
The problem is that I did not know it will use the partition as swap area rather than just put a swap file in the selected partition... (there was an unmarked "format" check box so I assume that my data will be saved)
This hard drive holds all my program files etc so I want it back!
So far I did:
sudo swapoff -a
What can I do in order to make my hard drive come back with its data? I do not wish to retrieve only selected files with some recovery tools.
P.S: it was 5-10% used before the accident and I immediately invoked the swapoff so I hope that my data was untouched.
