anyone have any offers how to recover formated partition in fedora? Story itself was, that I moved from Ubuntu to fedora 17, and during installation there was a choice to install fedora without managing current partitions only formating system one and installing fedora in it. Before installation on 160Gb HDD was 3 partitions (500MB SWAP, 50GB system and 100GB data), picked to install in system partition though after installation saw that data partition was formated also. Is there any way of restoring data partition to previous state as it was before installation?

Thank you in advance, Laurynas
