Formated EXT4 on GPT disk - can not recover

#1 Post by burke » 25 May 2015, 14:23

First of all Hello to every one.

Second - my English is not always grate - sorry .

Third - I am a linux novice.

In short yesterday I pulled one of my drives from my pc. I did't notice that my /dev/sdd disk become /dev/sdc. :oops:

I wanted to change label on sdc (not aware of change) but did not mange to to it, as I thought it was an empty drive, I formatted it with ext4 and changed label. After reboot i saw something was wrong with my partition so I changed label back.

I tried running test disk - deepscan but did not manage to find valid partition.

Drive is WD 2TB Black.

Second run of deep scan is in progress, I will borrow a 4 TB drive from a friend, but after first failure Icould really use some advice.

If you need some more info just let me know.

Thank you in advance.
