Windows 7: Deleted HDD files using diskpart command

Deleted HDD files using diskpart command

Hello
In an attempt to create a windows 7 bootable USB I've deleted my HDD (it was late and in a hurry ).
I have 2 drives connected: 1'st is an SSD drive - for main windows, 2'nd is a 1TB HDD drive western digital splitted in two partitions.
The commands i've runned are: diskpart, list disk (to discover the usb device number), select disk 6, clean, create partition primary, select partition 1, active, format fs=fat32 quick. At the format command it gave me an error, something that it could not format the drive. I've clicked ok since i was in a hurry and did not read the entire error.
Today I've runned MiniTool Partition Wizard Free scanner both quick and full scan but it found only one partition.
Right now i'm running the testdisk utility analyse option but is taking a while and soon i will post a screenshot.
If anyone could help me I would appreciate the help.
PS english is not my native language, sorry for spelling mistakes.

What exactly are you trying to do?
Are you trying to partition the HDD? You can easily do this from the Disk Management utility, no command prompt needed.

And, by the way, why are you formatting with FAT instead of NTFS?

I want to recover my partitions, and both were NTFS partitions.

You would probably have to use a data recovery tool; unfortunately I am not familiar with them to the point of recommending one. I'm sure others will chip in.
