    After moving the partition, the checkdisk reported error, and all my data was lost. The first thing you should do is to check, if the superblock if the problem:
    sudo fsck.ext4 -v /dev/sdx
    (x means your case, in my case the broken partition was sda4)
    If you get something like "the superblock could not be read", then list all your backup bloks:
    sudo mke2fs -n /dev/sdx
    To get access to your partition again, try all the backup blocks
    sudo e2fsck -b block_number /dev/sdx
    If it is not resolved, download TestDisk:
    Choose the corrupted partition
    Aanalyze it
    List the files
    Select the files you want to save (or select all)
    Choose destination and wait until it restores your stuff.
    I hope this could help.

    So if all the superblocks are stuffed there is no way of making the drive useable again is there?
