[ubuntu] recover data

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hello everybody, i got two questions, both involve data recovery. my brother has deleted his partition table of an windows NTFS harddisk, but has done nothing more. i wonder what is the best software for get the partition table back. i would like a linux software which can cope with as much file systems as possible. if it is not possible to get back the partition table. i'm looking for a decent recovery software. Is it possible to recover the directory structure and the files within, also to recover with the correct file names ? thanks in advance kind regards (Hardware)
