    Does ubuntu live session write anything on the primary partition partition

    Here is the situation.I am a duel windows ans ubuntu user. Accidentally I formatted the C partition(root partition of windows).

    Now I ran several live ubuntu sessions from CD. And found a way to recover my formatted C partition using testDisk.

    testDisk is supposed to revert back my partition to its original state, but only if i hadn't written anything after the format.

    My question is, does the live session write anything on the C partition(boot partition) ?

    Sometimes i tried to remotely access the pc, while the live session was running. I had to change the host name, root password and other network setting..does this activity may result is some data written on the formatted partition?

    If you were changing the settings in Ubuntu, then you were only affecting the temporary RAM drive.

    Wishing you a successful restoration of your formatted drive!
