When you launch Partition Wizard, right click on the new volume of the 250GB SSD, and set it inactive. Click on the Apply button on the top menu bar to make the change.

Afterwards run Partition Recovery Wizard as indicated in my previous post.

Hi,

First of all, sorry for the delay. It's because of my work time.

I did exactly what you said.

and the result:

Did you run a full scan ?

"Launch Partition Wizard, on the left Pane click on Partition Recovery Wizard > Next > Select your 250GB SSD > Next > Full Disk > Next > Full scan > Next. Allow the full scan to complete. "

How long did it take?

If what you had done is only a quick format the volume boot record of the second and third partition will still be intact and Partition Recovery Wizard will find it on a full scan as in the screenshot I posted in my post #10. I recovered both those partitions and could see all data.

( I deleted the three partitions in my trial 750GB HDD and did a quick format. Running Full scan found the second and third partitions as in the screenshot )

In your case I find no trace of the second and third partition.

surprisingly it took almost 45 min.
I did all processes step by step as you said.

i don't understand what's happened and have no idea.

OK, we now have to take recourse to other methods. But before that I have to confirm that the volume boot record of the second partition really does not exist. It involves some maths. So let me work it out and come back.

OK, here we go.

Run Partition Recovery Wizard again.

Click on Partition Recovery Wizard on the left pane > Next > select your 250GB SSD > Next > select Specified Range, Input staring LBA 3000. ending LBA 410000 ( four hundred and ten thousand) > Next > Full Scan > Next Take a screenshot of Found partitions Window. After taking the screenshot click on Cancel and close PW. post screenshot

SSD hard drive, deleted and quick formatted volumes-19-09-2016-12-56-49.jpg

( We are searching 200MB beyond LBA 3000 to see whether at the end of the first 100MB system reserved partition, it finds the volume boot record of the second partition. If it does not find any, then I have to take that something beyond a quick format had happened wiping out the Volume Boot Record of the second and third partition, making Partition Recovery impossible. We have to resort to data recovery procedures.)

There is something strange here. If you had specified LBA range 3000 to 410000 to scan, why is it showing the partition starting at 2048??????

Can you please repeat? This time post the screenshot of scan range settings where you had fixed the range ( the same window I had posted in post #17) and the resulting Found partitions Window after the range is scanned.

Note: I am now running TestDisk on my trial HDD and again it may take sometime to finish. So I will return again to this thread only after I had formulated the next strategy and tried it myself under simulated conditions.

After posting the above information, you may download TestDisk 7.0 ( Windows) ( and not the beta version 7.1) from TestDisk Download - CGSecurity extract it to your C: drive and keep it.
