223 Errors Repaired -Errors found, but have been repaired successfully. There were media errors that were within the repair capabilities of diagnostic utility. The drive should now be defect free.- Test complete Defect Free

You can do whatever you want. Since it has repaired something... I should try the partition wizard partition recovery (unallocated space, quick scan). It should find the partition within a minute. If not... try other tools suggested
Okay. I'm running the partition recovery wizard one more time. If it doesn't work, I'll try other methods as suggested by @jumanji.

Completed another run of the Partition Recovery Wizard (quick scan, unallocated space). Result is still the same. Alright. I'm going to try file recovery tools. I'll try using Puppy Linux as suggested above.

Nope. Puppy Linux as suggested above could not work. It could not detect the lost partition. Going to use PhotoRec now.

You need special software that can recover files from a lost partition. PhotoRec can only recover photo, audio, video as far as I know.

Right. And I'm not sure how to proceed with PhotoRec anyway, because it doesn't see the lost partition, I think. What software can I use?

Recuva - Undelete, Unerase, File and Disk Recovery - Free Download
It's free if you recover photos only. But you can use it as a test if photos/images are still there

Most of the files I'd like to recover are not photos. They're documents and others.
