    Recover data from an accidental diskpart / clean command


    Hey folks,

    What I did: Within CMD>diskpart>Select disk, i ran the clean (not clean all) command on a different drive than intended, (the goal was to recover a partition of a USB thumb drive), and ended up cleaning an external data drive (3TB), and would love to find out that my data is not lost. (over 2 TB of Data).

    What I've done since: I immediately cursed, and then exited the CMD before i caused any more problems. After some reading up on these forums and other forums, i ended up downloading MiniTool Partitioning Wizard, and TestDisk. Within MiniTool, I've run a quick scan, as per: How to Make Partition Recovery | MiniTool Partition Wizard Tutorial . The tool found 3 partitions, and i took a screenshot. (should be attached).

    Why I'm asking for help: I'm not sure what to do now. I had approximately the unallocated amount on the right (2048.0 GB) of data.(from my screenshot). The drive is not showing up in My Computer.
    Is all that is left a simple merge of the partitions?

    Please point me in the right direction.

    Thanks in advance,
    -drfalk

    Use testdisk to hunt for your lost partition. Pick the right disk it should be intel when asked what type, then pick analyse for lost partitions and see what it finds this may take a very long time. TestDisk Step By Step - CGSecurity -- Data Recovery Examples - CGSecurity If your confused about which disk to pick then post a pic of its output here.

    I ran the quick scan as instructed.

    The results are as shown.
    What should I do now? The website you linked instructs me to highlight each 'partition' but those 2 are not identifying themselves as partitions.

    Select the bottom one and hit p and see if it shows the correct files inside.

    I attached what it shows after hitting P on the bottom one.

    Doesn't look like any comprehensible file names

    Pick the lower one again but instead of hitting p hit enter to continue then post the what it shows please. EDIT: actually what does it show at this step before you quick search?

    This software is also free and seems to work well for your type of problem but you will at this point need another disk to transfer your files to then you will have to reformat your messed up disk and copy your files back to it. Do you have another disk you can use to save your recovered stuff too at this time? Partition Find and Mount — free partition recovery software
