hey everyone,

I was trying to install Linux Ubuntu from a bootable USB stick to my Laptop & I was prompted to create partitions for /home , /var , etc.. & select another few settings which i did. Unfortunately, my PC just froze during installation & wouldn't respond so i left it for some 2 hours hoping the problem would solve itself out, which didn't happen. What i did next was a hard reset by holding the power button.

Now the problem is when i tried to access my Hard Drive (at first it wasn't recognised by Windows) , i went ahead & deleted the previous partitions (that i previously created from within an Ubuntu live session) so windows recognized the hard drive. After restarting it, an automatic repair took place. Now the problem is my drive has a 1 TB storage but it shows only 12 GB (??) & i can't seem to access any of my data. Most of the files are there but they appear empty. I tried some data recovery tools but only a few files were recovered & most were empty.

Is there a way to fix it without losing my data?

Note: The pc in question is an HP OMEN 15, Windows 10 , intel core i7; the hard drive is a 1 TB HGST.

Thanks.
