Need help recovering Windows 7 ASAP

#1 Post by xTankJones16x » 25 Aug 2012, 22:45

Ok, LONG story short, my main HDD got wiped with Windows 7 on it, as well as all my files. It's a 1TB WD Black.

It now contains 50GB partitioned with Linux Mint on it, and the rest says "unallocated space". Though I'm not sure what it's partitioned as.

I ran testdisk overnight searching Intel/PC partition, and "Yes" under "Created in Vista". Came back with this:

I am now running a deeper search, but not sure if I'm doing what I need to do. Is there any way I can just get it back to like it was before installing Linux? Or worst case scenario, at least get my information back?
