You can try TestDisk, Quick Search, Deeper Search. In the list of partitions, search for partitions where you see "+Backup" at the bottom. If the partition size looks ok, set the partition as P(rimary).
On next screen, if you see all your partitions, choose Write, confirm, Quit and restart your computer.

Is it normal that as more deep search is making the longer it takes ? now is running for 8 days and it's only 50% ??? Why admin wont answer me ? maybe your program doesnt recovery files or it's not understanding what is going on and takes much time for searching ? I would like to get the answer...
