Are you trying to recover data, or just get the drive usable?

I'm not familiar with the software you used. Try to run r-studio to see if you catch any partition.

Hi,

As recommended, R-Studio is definetely a professional tool.
It does its work neatly.
I use it most of time for Logical Recoveries...

-RDS.

Download the free R-studio and run a complete scan. It should have no problem finding the partitions. I use it all the time for these types of problems. Best bang for your buck!

TestDisk 6.6 is a free tool and works really well. The only drawback is that it runs in a windows dos screen and is not that user friendly.
