Is there a reasonable recover option that will keep the file names intact?

OK.Let us get going. Past midnight here. So I shall just give you an exercise which you can do and report. I shall see the report card after another 10 hours from now my tomorrow morning.. And then we shall continue.

Download and install Getdataback Simple.. Let it scan your drive 2TB drive. Check whether it shows all your files with original folder structure. Post appropriate screenshots. The trial version can only show you the files if it can but you cannot copy without buying a license.( You can also preview the files and check their integrity) It will give us an idea whether it will be possible to recover the data in its original form. If results are positive we shall go ahead with a freeware - instead of buying a licence for $69 or 79...((And it is going to be a longer exercise. Patience and perseverance is the key in data recovery. There is no magic wand for instant results.I may keep changing the plans, you may have to repeat many times ..... If I am going to spend a day or two with it - taking into account our different time zones - you should also be prepared to run alongside with the breaks.))

Have a good day.

OK, for most part it is intuitive.( I also see that there has been many changes since I last downloaded it.) Mostly you will right click on both the panes to get the menu. Getdataback Simple does not write anything to the drive under recovery and so you can play around with it without fear and get a grip on it. Not a rocket science anyway.

You will now keep this as a backup - in case we are unable to recover the data with freeware.

It is now your sleep time. You can go to sleep. You will have your task cutout when you wake up.

Download TestDisk 7.0. See my post #13 here External HD - Partition Unallocated

It will be a 11.8MB testdisk-7.0.win.zip file. Extract it to the root of your C drive. In the testdisk-7.0 folder you will find testdisk_win.exe which you will run

Note: a. Do not download beta version 7.1. b. Do not download Windows 64-bit version.(even if your system is 64 bit)

On the external disk to which you want to copy the files create a folder named Recovery. This will be your destination Disk and Destination Folder. This disk should be plugged in before you run TestDisk. (Please remove all other USB HDDs/Flash drives/ hubs/docks. )

Now run TestDisk. You will navigate/select/highlight by using Up/Down, Left/Right Arrow keys in the TestDisk Window.

(At any point of time you can quit TestDisk by repeatedly pressing Q or by clicking on the X in the top right in the Title bar.)

First let us check whether TestDisk can find the partitions.

First Screen: Move the hihhlight to [No Log] and press Enter key.

Second screen: Select your faulty 2TB disk. (Note down the drive letter of your Destination drive.You will require this to navigate to the Recovery Folder later.)[Proceed] is already highlighted. Press Enter

Third Screen: [Intel] Enter

Fourth Screen: [Analyse] Enter

Fifth Screen: Post a screenshot

Further instructions after I see the screenshot. If I do not respond within half an hour, close Test Disk. You can run it again afterwards.

( Your Getdataback screenshot is truncated a weebit on the left side but sufficient to hide some info. In future make sure that the screenshots are not truncated and one can see all the information in it.)

I have downloaded 7.0 and it has been running for quite a while. 55% at this point and lists nothing as of yet.

Correct. I have followed your instruction carefully. I will post when it completes prior to any other action. 61% at the time of this post.
