- Accidental format 5 answers
So, I had Windows 7 on my hard drive. I decided to dual boot with Ubuntu 12.04. I was in a hurry and hit the wrong button, so it wiped out (full format) my Win7 install. It was a NTFS drive, but was formatted to ext4. I didn't realize it until about an hour of usage. There was lots of important data on there. Is there any hope of recovery? EDIT: As soon as I realized that the data was lost, I shut the computer down.
