  3. Lost my external Hard Drive when creating installation media (Boot Disc). Lost files?

    I accidentally or cluelessly used my ( main partition ) external 1TB HD to create installation media for Windows 10:

    Download Windows 10

    I didn't think it through and now I have a 32GB Boot Drive ESD-USB (EAfter creating media on External drive files are lost :) (Wich didn't work, for some reason "No operating system found" message...) and the rest of the 900+ GB are lost or simply invisible or hidden (I hope)

    Anyway, The external HD was over 400GB of files.

    Used recovery software (Recuva and Puran, portables) wich limits (apparently) to 32 GB or so, and another (currently scanning...) EaseUS Data Recovery actually allowed me to select a 900GB "LOST!!! partition". And found files waay over 1TB plus they are unnamed!!!

    Please, help

    Can the "lost partition" be found or recovered without information loss?
    What procedure would you recommend?

    Thanks in advance. Good Night.
