I wanted to delete my Linux partition, but I don't know why my OS X partition was also deleted.

So, I then reformatted the partition and installed a new OS X (Yosemite) on that partition.

I am trying to recover my lost data, I tried many applications such as Disk Drill, EaseUs, etc. But none of them was able to recover a single file from my 300 GB SSD!

    You might have been OK up to the 'installed new OS X' That was probably your downfall, unfortunately. – Tetsujin Oct 30 '15 at 19:27
  • There is no way to recover the data :-( – Moh Nov 1 '15 at 11:06

If you hadn't written to it, you might have had a chance. No chance, now. Restore from your backup.
