need to recover my deleted partition [SOLVED]I was trying to install Arch Linux and dual boot it with OSX. I got to a screen where it asked me what to partition as swap and what to partition as root. It appeared like this:
- Member Since

- Christchurch, New Zealand
- Intel MacBook White, iMac G3 Strawberry, iBook Clamshell Indigo.
My partition table must have changed because usually my HFS+ partition is /dev/sda1 but instead this was the Linux Swap! So I formatted my Mac OS with the Linux Swap filesystem! And now all my important data is lost, which includes school work, software I was programming, photos, and software keys.
Is there any way I can get my data back free? Maybe with a bootable USB key or something? I haven't done anything since this slip up. I never thought I'd be foolish enough to erase important data and have absolutely no backups of any of the data from recent times.
