How to recover partitions lost due to usage of 'clean' command in win7

As the title says, I've mistakenly used 'clean' command on my backup drive which is on my Imation external hdd, after the command used, all the partitions on the disk were deleted & the disk went to uninitialized state, I did initialized the disk but there are no partitions on that. Please suggest the way if there is any to recover the deleted partitions

The standard recommendation is Partition Wizard bootable disk, from here:

Not sure what your chances are and someone else may have other ideas.

thanks for your suggestion I downloaded that but I went with Easeus Partition Recovery 5.0.1 by downloading it, I've very good experience with their products so I tried it first, it did not let me down again, just retrieved the lost partitions(took 3 hours to scan completely), restored them to their original state in just two simple clicks. Now I've my external hdd in the same state as before the use of 'clean' command usage.
