I have an external Seagate HDD of 1TB. I was using the default partition it came with. Never repartitioned it.
Yesterday I accidentally started reformatting it instead of my other disk, with an option to overwrite with zeros. But then I quickly noticed my error and plugged out the HDD in a moment of panic.
Now if I try running testdisk, I'm unable to find any partitions. Deeper search doesn't help too. Photorec is able to recover files. But since there are a lot of files and all without the original names or folders, it is turning out to be a re-organization nightmare.
I just wanted to know if anything can be done to recreate the Partition table and recover the data(remaining 95% of the disk) with proper folder structures in the disk. Especially since my HDD had only one Partition(the default one), is there a weird tweak I could try?
