    Default ddrescue overwrote partition

    I had a problem with a SD Card and I decided to use the ddrescue to solve it but everything went worse instead. I booted from a Live USB Ubuntu distribution and run the following command:
    Code:
    ddrescue /dev/sdcard /dev/sda
    My mistake was that sda was the HDD where the windows partition was installed and ddrescue overwrote the hole disk. Is there a way to recover the content of the HDD in this case?

    Default Data Recovery

    Are you sure it overwrote the whole disk with new data?

    Download and try Recover My Files from http://download.getdata.com/RecoverMyFiles-Setup.exe - you will need to have the problem drive connected to a Windows box.

    Run a Recover Drive search on the physical drive. What do you find?
