I, personally, would not trust the re-built system. Too much chance it
would look like it was working but be dumping something important down a
black hole or ten somewhere I'm not watching.

I would try to get the most important of the data and settings back. (A
link useful for this kind of thing has been mentioned, there are others
if you search.) I might even get a new drive so I could keep the botched
drive around for a while in case there was something important I'd
forgotten. Other than that, I'd just rebuild the system from scratch.
