    In the previous screen did you move the highlight to the last data partition before pressing Shift+P?
    Yes

    OK, don't worry. There is no error message.I can see that there is just one folder/file named Windows Upgrade. May be that is the only one in it. Tomorrow or whenever you want or when a PC is available to you, run PW quick scan, double click on each partition found, explore and take a screenshot for record so that we know what folders/ files are there in each partition. In PW you can only explore and not copy.

    Data recovery is really a tedious job. We may have to go back and forth often times refining our approach.

    Send me a mention/PM when you have done that and we shall continue. Good night.

    O.K. Many thanks, get some rest. I opened up a document in PW, just notepad the info was there and was correct. I'll give you a shout when I'm in a position to continue. Take Care.

    Don't forget that there will likely be files you want to recover in the Users folder on the OS partition (that would have been the C: drive when windows was running).

    Yep @Bree, the OP will highlight/select each and every partition shown in TestDisk, list the files and copy all required data files.

    On the next TestDisk run, he has to plug-in another external disk which will be the destination disk to copy the files and follow the procedure already mentioned in my post " Copying files listed by TestDisk" in Seven Forums.

    I was jolted out of my seat when OP reported that after pressing P to list the files nothing happened . And then I saw the screenshot. I was expecting a long list of folders/and files in the "Data" partition - reason why I chose that partition first to be listed, but the screen was near empty. Closer examination revealed that TestDisk has listed the Folders Recycle Bin, System Volume Information - the system folders , and also a data folder/file named Windows 10 Upgrade. May be that was all there in that partition. On data recovery, I always keep my fingers crossed till the final results. We expect something and that does not happen, we don't expect something and that happens .

    Hi Jumanji & Bree

    My nephew didn't collect his laptop (will collect today). All the files, including 'Users' is located in (OS) as stated by Bree; I've selected 'Users', all files are being copied; which might take sometime.

    Yes, it is common practice for OEM's to supply their systems with two main partitions, a C: drive for the OS and a D: drive for data. It is equally common practice for users to save everything to their Documents, Pictures, Music, etc. folders and not think to use the D: drive.

    Hi Jumanji

    I've copied all the 'User' files (just some from the DVD situation outstanding, but they can wait) to an external drive. So am ready to recover the deleted partitions.

    Glad to know that you have recovered all/most data to an external drive.

    Now to write the partition table since the overwhelming opinion is that there is a greater possibility of the disk to be a GPT disk, write it as a GPT disk.

    Follow the same TestDisk process you had mentioned earlier https://www.geekyprojects.com/storag...-table-or-mbr/

    The only change is that instead of [Intel] select Partition Type [EFI GPT] and go ahead with the rest of the process indicated in that article and finally give the [Write] command.

    That should write the GPT partition table.

    Will your disk be bootable? No guarantee. As Bree already mentioned in an earlier post if it turns out to be bootable , it will be a "bonus"

    Can it be made bootable? It is for Windows 10 experts here , not me ( I am not one )
