Xfs partition formatted to ext4 by mistake, recovery?

#1 Post by Yaze » 07 Oct 2013, 19:13

Hi,
I formatted an xfs partition to ext4 by mistake. Can this be reverted to xfs and the previous data recovered?

Regards.

Testdisk couldn't do anything. I was able to use photorec to restore the data, music files mostly, and using Musicbrainz Picard I was able to then rename the restored file automatically.
