Yes, this tool is very good.

The disk partition(s) may be unreliable but the full filesystem can be
recovered and copied safely to a new partitiion. Please let me know if it
works for you so I can notify the author. He likes good news :)

If all works well run fdisk -l and write down those numbers, they can be
so very useful for recovery.
