I accidentally repartitioned my main storage hard drive, by using the following terminal command on it:
diskutil partitionDisk disk2 GPT JHFS+ "Canvio" 0g
The hard drive has about 3 TB of data on it, everything that I need. Is there any way to get this data back by just simply re-creating the partitions? Meaning will software out there restore the partition table? The original hard drive had two partitions: one for data and one for Time Machine backups.
I have the following software: Disk Drill and Stellar Phoenix Mac data recovery. I could scan the whole hard drive for its content copy that to a new hard drive and copy it back, but I was wondering if there is any other easier way of doing this, where the partitions can just be re-created on the same hard drive.
I am running 10.12.6
To make matters worse I just realized the drive might have also been encrypted with FileVault 2. Any chances for recovery now?
