Let it recover partition 2,3,4. After that try to recover in "unallocated space" only. But it will find nothing!

I told it before in post #14

Partition is 750GB So 750*1024*256 clusters of 4KB each. so total of 196 608 000 clusters!! A 400kB file uses 100 out of 196 608 000 clusters!! But you don't know which ones. Recovery software don't know anymore:
  • file names
  • is it a doc, xls, jpg file
  • size of file
  • blocks it uses
Can you reconstruct 10000 puzzles out of 196 608 000 pieces? All pieces are same size and square and you don't know how the puzzles look like.

Impossible as far as I know

Yes ask Greg. He has a lot of knowledge about.... just everything.
I just read details about NTFS... The MFT mirror is most likely still on disk. And maybe can be recovered.
Ask Greg

I specialize in the automated fixes which work best for consumers. I provided the solution which works best for this and thought it had been run right off, but now it appears other things were tried first possibly interfering.

At this point it may require your more advanced disk knowledge, Kaktussoft.

He did "diskpart clean" which did zero 1MB of physical disk. Afterwards he tried to recover the partitions using PW. It only found partition 2,3,4 and some fake 3MB partitions. He did recover one of the real partitions (I think partition 2). As far as I know he didn't do anything with the problem partition.

OP please confirm

I'm wondering what he ran before running PW Recovery Wizard, which might have interfered. I thought he as running it and find out a day later he was running other apps first.

In the past after Clean command PW Partition Recovery wizard was able to recover the entire disk, as I recall, including the boot sector.
