So I recently dual booted Ubuntu on to my laptop, I downloaded the files onto my desktop due to ease of use and put them on my external drive to transfer them to my laptop. While installing Ubuntu I accidentally selected my external drive as the install path instead of my laptop drive, they are the same size, and only realized it when I unplugged my external to get files off of it to put on my desktop.
When I plug it into my desktop (running windows 7) it does not recognize it or acknowledge that it is plugged in, but when I plug it into my laptop when I am running Ubuntu it finds it and when I view the contents all it has on it is a partial install of Ubuntu. is there a way that I can recover most if not all of what was on the drive before hand, it had all of my music, pictures and movies over the last 6 years on it.
