    my files were saved in an ext4 partition (drive) but I accidentally installed ubuntu in that partition (drive)

    I reset the PC button as fast as I can before ubuntu installs but it was only a split second and the partition got corrupted and my files were gone.

    I use GPARTED to rebuild the corrupted partition. my files are gone and I see LOST+FOUND folder again.

    can I still recover my files? :(


    I'm currently using UBUNTU and I don't know what program to use so I can recover my files @__@

    Depends what got done before you rebooted.
    Recovering files is a very tricky deal and might not work.

    However, if you used gparted to create a new partition, then you may as well have completely deleted them forever.
