Novice Needs What To Do Next In TestDisk

#1 Post by Rickie406 » 13 May 2018, 20:59

Have a 2TB External USB drive. Data only. Accidentally started a wipe with CCleaner and stopped when I realized had wrong disk.
Using Testdisk I got to the point as shown in Deep Search. What do I do next?
I believe that it is showing a BOOT partition, so I tried "T" to change the type to HPFS-NTFS.
But that did not change this display.
What now?
Please excuse the photo from a data dummie.

You should probably use TestDisk, Advanced, Undelete.
Be careful to store the recovered files on another disk.
Only once you have recovered all your files, sorted them, ..., you will be able to copy them back to your external disk.
