So a customer accidentally formatted a 2TB hard drive to NTFS. I used the usual techniques to try a recovery but nothing worked (Testdisk, Ontrack).
After discussing with him it looks like the drive was previously HFS.

I was wondering if this new information can help me? I never tried a recovery from HFS but I don't think it should be very different with Testdisk.
