Repairing a GPT partition

I have 3 drives in my pc, an SSD and two harddrives that are 2 TB each.

The 2 TB drives are GPT drives and accidentally in one of the drives I deleted the partition table that held the information about the disk and made it recognisable by windows.

Here is a picture from windows Disk Management: http://sdrv.ms/NlScyl in yellow is the deleted partition and the drive in question.

So anyone knows any tools or any way to restore a GPT partition?

Note that normal solutions like using the cmd with windows commands or the windows CD won't work I have already tried.

Thank you!

  1. TestDisk, Data Recovery
    TestDisk is powerful free data recovery software! It was primarily designed to help recover lost partitions and/or make non-booting disks bootable again when these symptoms are caused by faulty software, certain types of viruses or human error (such as accidentally deleting a Partition Table). Partition table recovery using TestDisk is really easy.

    NOTE If seeked lost file are still missing, give PhotoRec a try. PhotoRec is a signature based file recovery utility and may be able to recover your data where other methods failed.

    PhotoRec is file data recovery software designed to recover lost files including video, documents and archives from hard disks, CD-ROMs, and lost pictures (thus the Photo Recovery name) from digital camera memory. PhotoRec ignores the file system and goes after the underlying data, so it will still work even if your media's file system has been severely damaged or reformatted.
  2. It's not working at all

    If your partition was deleted by accident and do not format or rewrite too much on it, you could try use the Partition Assistant Home edtition which is free and integrate the function "partition recovery". However, if your partition has been formated or rewriten too much, you could only ask help for some professional data recovery software.
