I need some help recover files from a partially overwritten partition.
I will start with what happened. I was trying to make a image out of my hard drive using
dd, but I found somewhere online that using
pv would tell me the best bs count to make the copy, what it didn't say was that it would make the copy.
I ran the following command:
pv < /dev/sda > /dev/sdc
When I realized what was going on I stopped it, but it had already written around 1GB. I would like to recover the files that were not written over, I suspect those that were are long gone.
If someone knows a way I would be thankful.
