I have a Linux partition with ext4 and I accidentally formatted it with Mac OS X Disk Utility to HFS+ (Mac OS X Extended Journaled).

I tried to recover it with on Windows but I can't get any files except few from trash or temporary browser files.

Now I'm trying another software on OS X:, however it takes some time to scan partitions.

Any ideas how to recover that partition? Should I recover it on Linux or Mac?
