Bad relative sector - pls help

#1 Post by insane »

I was trying to install Ubuntu today and I accidently clicked 'delete' on my 1TB hard drive. (Stupid mistake I know)

I heard about TestDisk and downloaded it. I got to the stage where it says: Analyse and went for Intel/PC

And it comes up with the information in the picture.

Is there any way of getting my data back? It's absolutely essential i get it back.

Thankyou for any help

Your screen only provides your current status of your partition table.
If it's wrong, you'll have no access to any d^9ata.
Did you run Quick and in case if nothing will be found Deeper Search?
Important are the results, does testdisk find your partition including your data.
If TestDisk finds an appropriate partition, please check it and press p to have a try to list your files.
