Kaktussoft I had same problem from the start, Partition that is not found ..

At least can you tell me best recovery data program, that is able to recover file names too?
Do you see data without a file name?

Partition Wizard (partition recovery) is great. TESTDISK is even better, but I only used it once (to recover from a faulty $MFT). PhotoRec PhotoRec Step By Step - CGSecurity (never used it myself). Don't know if it corrects the filenames. Most likely it WON'T.

I used PhotoREC, it doesn't recover file names, but it can see everything, I would use it for smaller poject.
Will try with EaseUS Data Recovery, to see if it can see data. I don't think data is lost, or renamed, even formated.

Scanning for data recovery, thanks guys for your time and effort, I will post once Data Recovery scan is done, to see what I can save.

Will se what it found in 3 hours (so far it found 133 files)
