I'm trying to repair a partition table so a 4TB drive will mount. I used fdisk to partition the wrong drive, and now I'm hoping to recover. I found this:


Which is almost exactly my issue. The only slight difference is the 4TB drive, as it was partitioned previously, may have been using 4096 byte block sizes instead of 512. It's not the OS drive, so I can boot into my system. I can't format the partition - it has a TON of data that I need to get at.

Any tips on next steps are much appreciated.
