so i originally had windows 7 loaded on a 500GB partition on my 1TB hard drive (ntfs)
i installed ubuntu (using the shrink your partion method) where it pushes your files to over and creates two partitions
so at this point three partions on my drive (two OS and 1 data)
my pc was booting using ubuntu's boot manager
here comes the bad part
within ubuntu i formatted my NTFS partition to FAT (which took 20 seconds so im assuming was a quick format)
i need to use some kind of utility to undo this mistake.
anybody have suggestion

by the looks of it ddrescue looks for errors on the disk?
will this recover by partition table that i just formatted?
