Linux – How to recover a partition accidently deleted with fdisk (Linux)


I am using FC6 in VMware, I accidently deleted my partition by using fdisk, it told me that after the restart, the partition will be deleted. Now I lost all my important data in that drive. What are the ways to recover this partition?


I installed teskdisk, after running it I did following

  1. After disk selection I got that /dev.hdd/ is the drive that I am looking for. So I select it.

  2. After that I go to the "Analyze" option.

  3. After a quick search it found all files I am looking for.

Now can you please tell me how to recover this partition?
