When you run Testdisk, you get a screen listing your available
the drive you wish to recover and select the Analyze option.
It will show the current partition structure and when you Press
Enter, It will start searching the drive for partitions. If
you have Deleted your partition table, nothing will be here.
Recover Lost Data
this search is complete, Press Enter again. It's always good
to run the Search Option to do a more comprehensive search of
the drive. If you had no partitions shown, because of a wiped
or damaged partition table, Testdisk will now hopefully have
Original partitions. Verify the information and select Write
Option to save the new Partition information onto the disk.
Partitions should now be up and running again. If you damaged
the partition boot sector on your partition, you should select
the Advanced Option, then Boot It will compare the boot sector
to the backup boot sector. If they are different it will ask
you if you wish to overwrite the boot sector. You can list files
of Partition by pressing P.
