You wouldn't want to use Data Recovery (yet) but instead use Partition Wizard Partition Recovery Wizard - Video Help which is an undelete operation that's been proven to recover a partition after Clean Command.

Make sure you run the Full Scan and not the Quick one. If it doesn't find a partition then I'd recover the partitions it does find, then try Partition Recovery Wizard followed by data recovery to see if you can find anything else.

Previously any disk wiped with Clean command was thought not to be recoverable - you can thank PW for what you did find.

I ran disktest (not the one you suggested. Ypurs is running now) and it didnt find my main one again. Could it be lost forever

Partition Wizard Partition Recovery Wizard is what has worked for this in the past.

Did you just say you haven't run it yet? Why not? You told me you were running it 16 hours ago.
