How to undo DiskUtility Repair--it deleted all my files 2013

If i had stopped THERE, and searched the forums i could have found how to fix THAT problem--that has been answered tons of times…

*

But, instead, i went to Disk Utility and asked it to repair my Bootcamp partition (I have Paragon NTFS and it has worked for years, and so I did not have a reason to doubt Disk Utility's ability to Repair an NTFS volume--not that i have tried it before, of course).

*

Disk Utility repair ran for about 10-15 minutes and said it fixed about 10-20 things.

*

The drive information (in the side bar and below) still had the BOOTCAMP partition, reported that it was NTFS, said that there was 308 GB still available of the 1.5TB drive, and that it contained 1.19TB 'used'. Looked normal to me.

*

I closed Disk Utility and then opened a Finder window to see if DU left any 'artifacts' of its 'fixes' on the BOOTCAMP partition, and all the files were gone! Even though DU said it had 1.19TB 'used', all of my files are gone. [I rebooted also, to verify that it was not some 'delayed reporting' issue.]


*

When I enable 'hidden files' to show, what I get on the Bootcamp partition are these three entries:

.DS_Store (16KB), .fseventsd folder (with a 1KB UUID file inside it), and a .Trashes folder with zero KB.

*

At this point, I panic and assume the position of despair. There is no 'undo' key for the D/U that I can find. I do an orderly shut down of the system, physically remove the Win7 BC drive, and make/verify a sector-by-sector clone of the drive (on a Win7 laptop, using Acronis--22 hours).

*

In Win7 Disk Management, the GPT partition (on the original drive) shows up and the BOOTCAMP partition shows up--with the proper size--but windows does NOT recognize the partition as being NTFS. It reports it as being RAW and 'urges' me to format it (yeah, right…).

*

So, I place the sector-by-sector duplicate back into the Mac, boot up (only the Mac OS is given as an option), and am ready to 'work on' recovering the Win7 BC partition (if possible).

*

I am avoiding trying to fix the booting problem, because recovery of the 1.2TB of a working system is much more critical for me.

*

The clone HDD reports the same in DU, except now the GPT partition shows up as greyed-out 'disk1s1', right above the "BOOTCAMP" partition in the sidebar. [I understand from researching this that disk1s1 is somehow related to the bootloader for BC?]

*

I used the demo version of Data Rescue 3 to scan for recoverable files from the drive, but it doesn't even report the .files. (I am running the deep scan now, but will take about another 9 hours to complete that).

*

Has anybody got any suggestions on how to reclaim this partition and its system?

*

Here are a couple of other details from diagnostic tools:
