I phrased that badly. In fact only 70GB of the 160GB was partitioned with
windows. The rest was "windows-free" and unpartitioned.

After testdisk recovered it I could see the windows partition as before
(same size) plus a Linux and Linux swap partition just where I expected
them to be (the last +- 80GB). I subsequently deleted them. I'll try again
sometime but only after I've been down to the bottle store.
