I tried to fix the problem with TestDisk. It wrote new ext superblocks
on the whole disk, when I thought it would search for the old ones, so
the file system of the Ubuntu installation is finished and burried. Then
I tried to get the files out, but Photorec can only see some useless
Windows files, the names of which are changed to series of numbers.
Currently I'm pretty much fed up with ALL operating systems.

Thanks for helping
