I had discovered my partitions on my HHD had been lost and was analyzing the drive with testdisk. stupid me did let it finish and now i have a split partition. is it possible to rejoin these partitions without losing data?

TestDisk can not merge partitions but it can undelete lost partitions. So check the partitions found after Quick Search and if necessary Deeper Search. Set the partitions to recover to *(bootable), P(rimary) or L(ogical). On next screen, choose Write, confirm, Quit.
