My friend recently accidentally wiped 1.8TB of data which included the partition.
What i used was PartedMagic on a pendrive and used the PhotoRec app. While it may sound like a photo recovery tool, it recovers a lot more and will recover data regardless of file system used.
It took forever (about a day and a half). It did however recover about 1.TB of data. Even some really old files.
Might be worth giving that a try.

I used a copy of getdataback all one word, when I erased 50k of my MP3s by accident. 2hrs and I had everything back. I deleted my HD partition by accident.

I haven't heard of this before but Id be willing to pay the cash just for the convenience. I will have a look, hopefully they give a trial so I can see what they can potentially restore.

They do have a demo. They have been around for a while. Was 10 years ago when I deleted my MP3s.

Cool. Let me know how that goes. Have not used it for a while.

TestDisk and PhotoRec are my favorite file recovery tools; been using both for some years now and I've been able to rescue whole NTFS partitions or just files with a very high success rate, even when the disks aren't recognized in Windows anymore or just plain failed, as long the rotating servo works.
