    How to recover partitions deleted by mistake?

    Hi all,

    I have delete a whole disk that contained a linux installation using "clean" command on Windows using diskpart. After doing that I realized I had delete the wrong disk.

    How could I recover it? I have write nothing nor create any partition on the disk after doing this.

    The disk is a SSD.

    Many thanks in advance

    I've used the Active@ Recovery tools before...

    Active@ Partition Recovery restores deleted & damaged volumes &amp disks. Freeware Data Recovery Software Toolkit

    Couldn't see if there was a free version, there was when I last tried it a couple of years ago.

    If not there may be something in the UBCD, ERD Commander etc. type tools.

    I want to thank the help.

    I finally recovered the disk, the procedure were:

    -Use testdisk to recover main partition
    -Installing fresh kubuntu 14.2 onto a new SSD
    -Resize recovered partition to exactly match in size with new one on the new installation (using gparted)
    -Clone partition to partition with clonezilla
    -Restore grub using "boot repair disk"
    -Boot on recovered disk
    -Modify grub to avoid 10 secons wait screen on every boot.

    Regards
