@XweAponX, I see that you have used the beta version 7.1. As far as possible avoid using beta version and use the stable version. When Christophe Grenier decides Beta testing is over and moves 7.1 as a stable version, you can start using 7.1

Christophe Grenier: "If both MFT and MFTMirr are damaged and thus cannot be repaired using TestDisk, you might want to try commercial software like Zero Assumption Recovery, GetDataBack for NTFS or Restorer 2000."

Try the Demo version of Active @ File Recovery Erased file recovery tool - Active@ File Recovery and check if you can recover the files. At USD 29 it is cheaper than GetDataBback Simple and others and many users here had successfully used it to recover the data when TestDisk failed to repair the MFT ( Thanks to SIW2 who suggested it)

After you recover the data you may wipe the disk clean (diskpart cleanall or HDD LLF Low Level Format Tool if you want GUI ( recommended) and then do a clean install of Windows.

Thanks again to FreeBooter - the rising star.
Thank you very much @jumanji!

Once I installed the Magician software into the machine, I discovered all kinds of things I neglected. the AHCI was shut off, turning it on sped it up considerable. Then it had something called "Rapid Mode" which makes the machine boot up in about 5 secs, and run with hardly any lag. And a few more settings that shut off things SSD's don't use like Pre/Superfetch. And the software monitors the health of the drive, optimitses it automatically, so no more Raxco Perfect Disk. Works great for HDDs, but I think PD is what killed the original OS.

I guess it's the era of the NAND!

Don't forget you don't want to defragment SDD drives which will reduce the lifespan of the SSD drive.

The latest version of the Raxco Perfect Disk claims free space consolidation can improve SSD write performance. The SSD Optimize defrag method is a special defrag method for SSD drives that focuses on free space consolidation without defragmentation of files. As such, it will leave files in a fragmented state while consolidating free space into large pieces.

I have a Raxco Perfect Disk installed i have disabled free space consolidation for SSD drive i have not notice any slow down of the write performance.

Master File Table Size?
I remember seeing a tweak about changing the MFT from the default DWORD 1 (12.5%) up to 4 (50%), but this was a long time ago. I'd assume changing it's size has some effect on system speed if you were closing in on max space, but lets say on an SSD would it even be wise to consider changing it's...
