errrmmm, yeah, good luck with that. Seriously, unless I've misunderstood, you messed up your install partition, so re-formatted it (and re-installed) and *now* you want to get your old files back? If so, those files are long gone. I recommend a nice backup of any important files you have left, and setup a separate data partition (search the forums for how) so that if this happens again, you can safely reinstall on the install partition, without damaging your data on the other partition.
