Hey guys. I got a big problem... Somehow all my files from a partition are gone and I can't figure out what happened. I have a dual boot with Win 7 and eOS and today I booted Win to install some stuff on my phone. Everything was fine, till I restarted and tried to boot eOS. At some point I got a "press S to skip mounting or M for manual recovery" message. I waited a while, it won't go away, so I hit S and the OS booted fine. That partition (a NTFS partition) was not mounted, as expected, but I couldn't mount it manually either. So I restarted and went back to Win, thinking that somehow I've broken my eOS installation.
In Win, huge surprise. The partition was empty, with only one file on it, bootsqm.dat. I really don't know what THE F*** happened! I did a scan with a recovery software (Ontrack EasyRecovery) and if I scan for deleted files, I get nothing. However, if I choose the "drive formatted" option, it finds lots of files, I'm guessing all of them, but it takes over 19 hours to scan, so I aborted it.
How did the partition get formatted?! Or is it really? Is there anything else I can do, besides data recovery?
