the more important your data, the more backups you should make. no matter what os, hardware, or user it is, its never 100% save. best do a backup on another hdd and store it somewhere outside your own house/flat.

The best free is Recuva. It will recover the files but not always the files name and never the structure.

I like http://www.powerdatarecovery.com/

 

Do you use bootmgr or grub?

Because if you use bootmgr and the partition you skipped mounting had bootmgr on it, that's why it got corrupted.

NSA runs a garbage service here, they just wait till you throw it away. Take it from your garbage and repair it  :shiftyninja:

While I agree DVDs are not great for 20 years of storage if you sit them in the sun, etc.. 

 

I have an original U2 The Joshua Tree cd. It is 27 years old this year. It is still working perfectly.
