I'm trying to recover a partition table with testdisk. The disk contains a dual boot Windows 8 along a Linux OS. The Linux install contains four partitions: a swap partition, the / ext4 partition, the /home ext4 partition and a tiny unallocated partition.
TestDisk is powerful free data recovery software! It was primarily designed to help recover lost partitions and/or make non-booting disks bootable again when these symptoms are caused by faulty software, certain types of viruses or human error (such as accidentally deleting a Partition Table).
