Please let me know did you run Deeper Search?
Because it takes some time too.
Did you use this menu;

Quick Search might be faster.

If you already used deeper serach and nothing was found.
It might be a case to use datarecovery software.

Yes I have tried both quick searches and deeper searches, but no partition has been found.
Thank you very much for your help. If there is nothing more I can try then I will have to buy data recovery software.

Normally TestDisk 6.14-32bit should be used.

PhotoRec would recover everything but no directories and file names.
In your case, commercial software might be appropriate.
Affordable might be scavenger;

And Restorer Ultimate;

You should use the testversion first, before you're going to buy anything.

Please check in datarecovery software the disk.
Scavenger use the long scan and Restorer Ultimate the RAW scan

Thank you for that information. I will make sure that I use the demo version before I buy.
