You can use the menu Type to change W2K Dynamic /SFS to NTFS.

Another try would be to choose partition table type "None" and run Analyse, Quick and if not all partitions are found, to run "Deeper Search" also.
TestDisk will check each sector and it might be possible that testdisk finds more partitions.

Thanks again Fiona.
I am trying at the moment to rebuild the boot sector of the third partition of 1272gb on the first disk.
