i recently installed lubuntu by overwriting over windows 7.
to make it clearer, i have lubuntu as my operatins system no dual boot...only a single OS.
Now , as far as i have heard,when you install a new os over your current os, only the partition in which the os is installed is formatted. but i dont know how, but my entire hard disk was formatted !! the entire 160 gb !! Among the formatted data were many movies and photos clicked over 6 years :'(.. how do i recover them , or atleast most of them??
please help...they are really sentimental..
