partition table recovery

my last tryst with openbsd left me in tears.. my partition table destroyed! but thankfully, i gained my wits before any data was written to disk. so now i need to recover partition table back.. any tips?

gparted gave me a great big warning that it will take too long. it didn't take too long, and it couldn't recover my partition table either.

gpart took a bit longer, but failed as well.

testdisk seems to be making progress, but it is awfully slow.. much slower than either of the above. i have spent the entire night watching it count each cylinder as it attempts to recreate my partition table. it is still counting, and now it is early morning. i should catch a few winks, or i'll be wasted today.

update: all is well :)
