RedHat 9 Recover Hard Drive Data
Can anyone suggest any tools to recover data from a formatted hard drive.
It was running RedHat 9 and I formatted and reinstalled RedHat 9..
Needless to say, I forgot about a few files...
I've googled and all i've found are windows solutions.. Any help would be appreciated, TIA

Unfortunately though, if you reinstalled over the last installation, chances are that most of your files have been overwritten and software based recovery is no longer possible. You might be chasing a ghost here.

Agreed. The only tools that I know of that would be of use are not available to the average Joe.

When I reinstalled RedHat 9 would that have just done a high-level quick format??

Thanks for all your help--
SleuthKit recovered the files.
