backup using dd command directly or using a backup application - I use the clonezilla live CD for hard drive backups....

so after a deep scan in testdisk, when selecting the Intel partition option, this is what i get:
TestDisk 6.8, Data Recovery Utility, August 2007 Christophe GRENIER <firstname.lastname@example.org> http://www.cgsecurity.org Disk /dev/sdb - 8021 MB / 7649 MiB - CHS 1023 247 62 Partition Start End Size in sectors No partition found or selected for recovery [ Quit ] Return to main menu

I have not tried this but it may help ... backup first !
Once you have partition recovered check if files already exist ... if they don't then you can then run testdisk again to search for files.
Good luck ...
ED:btw do you know the disk partition structure - was it a single fat partition ?

What does fdisk -l report ... are all cylinders allocated to the single partition. For a new flash drive (4GB) I got 1063 cylinders, start at 1 and end at 1064 with system W95 FAT32 (LBA).

Did you backup the disk ... so you can restore the previous status ? If you did now would be a good time to restore.
If you don't have a backup ... how did you repair the fat32 partition ?
