I have lost all partitions in my laptop's hard disk recently and its now showing as a raw disk.

I have made a bootable pen drive using Ubuntu-12.04 and trying to recover the lost data using TestDisk.

I have successfully installed the software and now when I'm running it, am getting this error.

testdisk: error while loading shared libraries: libntfs-3g.so.835: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

State of my System Partitions

ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo fdisk -l

You need to install the ntfs-3g package, as in sudo apt-get install ntfs-3g.
