Looking to recover data/partition index from this disk..

It used to be a EXT4 but, were trying this HDD to be GPT'ed to view the files in windows. Now, after having jumped back to Linux the partition was inadvertently changed to NTFS. However, so far nothing has been formatted.
How many partition overrides have occured. Would testdisk be able to retrieve the data ?
