Accidental re-partition of hard drive. Please help.

Hi all,

I struggled to find an appropriate section for this - Hopefully someone here can help.



It's pretty simple.

I had a USB 160gb HDD.


One partition occupied the whole disk. Settings were MBR, FAT. (32? whatever osx formats as when you pick FAT).



I accidentally click the drive in disk utility, went to the partition tab, selected '1 partition' and hit apply.

Options were MBR, FAT.

I know, sounds like a hell of an accident! lol. I just picked the wrong drive.



Anyway, I haven't touched the drive since.


I took a little flash drive and recreated the balls up so I could non destructively test out some recovery software.

Everything I've tried claims to restore deleted partitions, but so far none of them do.


Can anyone help?

Many thanks.

try the data rescue suite for mac os x, it may rescue entire partitions.

They are all listed at macupdates - make sure you dont put it on drive that you wanna rescue


Also mac data recovery guru is good for files. I happen to have a regged ver and I think its good.

I can help you some I think if u are totally stuck.


I also read you have the nvinject sources + natit - that used to be at nvinject.free.fr as source code


here is a picture http://archive.is/xiE8g of the contents that used to be. do you have any of these?
