Re: Deleted from partition table

You might like to try gpart:

Package: gpart
Priority: optional
Section: admin
Installed-Size: 67
Maintainer: David Coe <davidc debian org>
Architecture: i386
Version: 0.1h-3
Depends: libc6 (>= 2.2.4-4)
Filename: pool/main/g/gpart/gpart_0.1h-3_i386.deb
Size: 34326

Description: Guess PC disk partition table, find lost partitions
 Gpart is a tool which tries to guess the primary partition table of a
 PC-type disk in case the primary partition table in sector 0 is
 damaged, incorrect or deleted.
 .
 It is also good at finding and listing the types, locations, and
 sizes of inadvertently-deleted partitions, both primary and logical.
 It gives you the information you need to manually re-create them
 (using fdisk, cfdisk, sfdisk, etc.).
 .
 The guessed table can also be written to a file or (if you firmly
 believe the guessed table is entirely correct) directly to a disk
 device.
 .
 Supported (guessable) filesystem or partition types:
 .
  * BeOS filesystem type.
  * FreeBSD/NetBSD/386BSD disklabel sub-partitioning
    scheme used on Intel platforms.
  * Linux second extended filesystem.
  * MS-DOS FAT12/16/32 "filesystems".
  * IBM OS/2 High Performance filesystem.
  * Linux LVM physical volumes (LVM by Heinz Mauelshagen).
  * Linux swap partitions (versions 0 and 1).
  * The Minix operating system filesystem type.
  * MS Windows NT/2000 filesystem.
  * QNX 4.x filesystem.
  * The Reiser filesystem (version 3.5.X, X > 11).
  * Sun Solaris on Intel platforms uses a sub-partitioning
    scheme on PC hard disks similar to the BSD disklabels.
  * Silicon Graphics' journalling filesystem for Linux.
 .
 Other types may be added relatively easily, as separately compiled modules.
