That result is useless. We aren't looking for FAT partitions. They are fake.
Did you do "Deeper Search"?

The partitions in your screenshot cannot be recovered: Reason they are larger than the physical disk. The 2 partitions overlap btw. Just click "continue" there (no other options available)

I don't see anywhere in the thread where it specifies it is a GPT formatted drive. Am I missing that?


If it's MBR then it should be partition recoverable after Clean command as we've done here repeatedly. Again, have you completed the Quick Scan with PW?


What does the color legend say that a Yellow disk means in your PW screenshot, since it is cropped so tightly that much information is hidden.

Only the MBR partitioning information and hidden sector information are overwritten
=>Now I know what you mean Greg. I thought the first 1MB of physical disk (not only if GPT) will be overwritten by "diskpart clean".

I interpreted the explanation totally wrong a few times!
Indeed if only MBR and partition table (total 1 sector = 512 bytes) is deleted ... recovery is simple. Just do Partition Wizard and a partition recovery->quick scan. But that should take a few seconds to complete ... very strange it didn't work.

I think he might have run the Full Scan and then interrupted it - which is why I spoke up. I'd run the Quick Scan again to be sure.

No i didn't finish the PW's quick scan as it was taking hours to find the partition almost like a deep scan so I jumped to testdisk. I'd run it again and post a snap here.

How long should the PW's quick scan take to finish the scan on a drive like mine?
