I accidentally (too less sleep) formatted a ntfs partition (system-partition of windows 7) that I actually wanted to clone with imagex (yes, you may laugh at me). If that wasn't enough, I first forgot to use the /q-switch for quick-format, canceled at 7% and formatted it again using the /q-switch.
I then tried to recover it using testdisk. After scanning the harddisk, it says that it can't recover my partition. Is there any possibility to trick testdisk for at least a partial recovery of that partition?
(btw: please do not mark this as dupe. I know how to recover files and in fact photorec would work. But it is important to recover the partition at least partially. So this is not a simple "recover files from deleted ntfs-partition"-question)
