Partition found - Disk seems too small

Hello everyone & happy new year,

I recently got a problem with my backup ext. hdd resulting Windows to recognize it as RAW.
I tried a raw recovery software and got some of my 250GB back, but without names or directories.
A friend suggested me TestDisk to attempt recover the drive as a whole.

So, here are my first results using it:


The partition has been found but I got the error that it "seems too small!".
Could this be fixed by changing the geometry using an appropriate CHS pattern? How should I procceed?

Thanks in advance! :)
