Command: testdisk

  TestDisk 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). Partition table recovery
  using TestDisk is really easy.
  TestDisk can:
  -  Fix partition table, recover deleted partition.
  -  Recover FAT32 boot sector from its backup.
  -  Rebuild FAT12/FAT16/FAT32 boot sector.
  -  Fix FAT tables.
  -  Rebuild NTFS boot sector.
  -  Recover NTFS boot sector from its backup.
  -  Fix MFT using MFT mirror.
  -  Locate ext2/ext3/ext4 Backup SuperBlock.
  -  Undelete files from FAT, exFAT, NTFS and ext2 filesystem.
  -  Copy files from deleted FAT, exFAT, NTFS and ext2/ext3/ext4
  TestDisk has features for both novices and experts. For those who know
  little or nothing about data recovery techniques, TestDisk can be used
  to collect detailed information about a non-booting drive which can
  then be sent to a tech for further analysis. Those more familiar with
  such procedures should find TestDisk a handy tool in performing onsite
