    Error Made: Unknowingly I fired the clean command in repair pc CMD, while installing Windows 10.

    Totally my disk with three partitions.

    Partition 1: Where I Tried to install windows10, but thrown an error as mentioned below.
    Partition2 & 3 : other partitions which were gone after entering clean command.
    While I was installing Windows10, it has shown an error like windows cannot be installed on this partition, it is GPT partition, which is partition 1.

    So went to repair my pc --> Repair PC selected advanced options and command prompt then.

    > diskpart
    > list disk
    > select disk 0
    > list partition
    > select partition 1

    Hi, this description of 'clean' shows that crucial information about your partitions has been destroyed - overwritten.
    Clean vs Clean all in diskpart.. - [Solved] - Windows 7

    Have you been using disk imaging routinely- which we repeatedly recommend? (e.g. Macrium Reflect (free - yes free) + external storage for disk image sets.

    If you have, you can restore the most recent image.

    (There are other disk imaging programs around too- it's been available for years as a method).

    Hopefully you have a full backup of your personal data.

    You can of course see what happens if you use data recovery or partition recovery programs such as
    Rebuild and Recover Partition Table - EaseUS Partition Table Doctor

    but I would assume the purpose of that command is to make that impossible.
