I was trying to create bootable USB media in Boot Camp Assistant. Had a small USB plugged in and my HDD. Upon formatting I think my partition table screwed up. I had 2 partitions. 1.2TB NTFS and 0.8TB exFAT. Immediately I ran diskutil and gpt which show:
$ gpt show start size index contents 0 1 MBR 1 62 63 2344529857 1 MBR Part 7 2344529920 1562497024 2 MBR Part 7 3907026944 2220
diskutil (I already tried to fix using gpt add - causing both partitions to read NTFS):
$ diskutil list /dev/disk1 (external, physical): #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: FDisk_partition_scheme *2.0 TB disk1 1: Windows_NTFS 1.2 TB disk1s1 1: Windows_NTFS 800.0 GB disk1s2
I tried to recover it using gpt add and made the GUID NTFS for both. They wouldnt mount.
I then tried pdisk and completely ruined my partition table.
Is there a way i can get my partitions back? After pdisk my gpt show now reads:
$ gpt show start size index contents 0 3907029164
and diskutil reads:
$ diskutil list /dev/disk2 (external, physical): #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: *2.0 TB disk2
Am I screwed? I havent written to the HD. I know my files and partitions are still there. I just need help fixing this.
(p.s. currently using testdisk and scanning as an INTEL drive).
