IMHO (this is what I understand from the screenshots you've uploaded) the drive "HAD" a GPT FS that for some reason (FW update ?) turned to an MBR
select (highlight) the drive "HGST HDN72..." click CTRL+E and upload the screenshot (I.e lets c sector 0)

This is what it looked like during the scan (~two hours):
https://i.gyazo.com/1ac9b7fa9a111b5deeb ... 2e351a.png

After I stopped the scan, it looked like this:
https://i.gyazo.com/c9e20421c8d094689fb ... 42e385.png

When I double clicked the "Basic data partition" that has a Start value of 16 MB and Size of 5.46 TB, it shows all of the folders that I saw when I ran testdisk, in the "root" folder. It also has a metafiles folder with a subfolder that is named $Extend.

I checked the folders that I wanted to recover and clicked on the "recover marked" button. It gave me the 256 KB limitation... I don't know if I should buy the R-Studio NTFS version or the regular R-Studio (both are in the list of products that the limitation box says can recover)... Going forward I will try to have 3 backups of everything (one on the HGST, one on the "backup SSD", one on my C drive (M.2 SSD)).

This is the "Disk Management" screen (Disk 0 is the drive I am trying to recover):

I'm not sure what you want me to screenshot, jol

As I guessed drive turned on MBR so It has drive limit around 2 or 3 tb. You are wrong way. You haven't lost data yet. You lost GPT partition table so 6 TB drive should be GPT table system. You should restore ex partition table and drive would turn again initial volume. I would fix it in 10 minute.

But I wonder why there write GPT . Strange.
Anyway try to recover partition

I did what you said, and it gave me this:

I'm not really sure if I have to click an option on that page...

DigitalVeriKurtarma, I don't know how to "restore ex partition table" can you send me some step-by-step instructions?
