Thanks, I'll try UFS, Rstudio and then reclaime after that.
I have the disk slaved and have also made a disk image from it via the [email protected]
undelete which appears to be opening on most recovery apps I've opened.
The OS itself used up 40gb reinstalling, but the overall data before the reinstall was about 400gb+
So does a partial overwrite of 40GB enough to destroy everything on the drive over 1 sector? I can see the file structure of the files from before, but literally anything I try to preview is just nonsense hex,ascii, unicode compared to what it should be.
