I mounted my an ext2 fs drive /dev/sda8 on to the /home directory and i lost all the user data files.

Is their any way by which i can recover user data. The data is still on to the disk because the amount of used disk space is still same.

I tried to unmount /dev/sda8 but i m not able to unmount as is says device too busy.
