All files (system and data) were deleted by ConfigServer Explorer by mistake. It basically erased my disks. Is there any changes to get my data files back? Anyone has such successful story?

By now I doubt it unless you have the backups you should have been making.

There might be a chance for some of the data as long as it wasn't overwritten by something else. If it wasn't priceless data then I wouldn't bother, and if it was then you should have had backups.

If you are still trying to recover this, try Photorec.

It does not work with Reiser FS, it does work with ext2/ext3. It is know to work with FAT,NTFS,HFS+ as well, and the docs make it sound likely to work with others as well.

I asked OnTrack people to recover the disk. Nothing useful was recovered.

Should be very careful using explorer like tools on linux.
