    The other day, I resized the mac partition while having a functioning Bootcamp-partition. As if that wasn't enough, I also upgraded Yosemite to El Capitan Beta 1.
    El Capitan worked, but when I discovered that the Bootcamp-partition didn't show up in the boot options, I tried to fix it with testdisk, and even gdisk. The latter, which totally screwed up my mac-partition.

    I got the question-mark when I rebooted, so nothing was functioning.
    So I installed Windows 10 and erased the bootcamp-partition.
    I can live with bootcamp-files gone, but not the Mac-files gone.

    Now, I've installed Mac onto an USB. This is very, very slow, but it works.

    The problem is that according to Disk Utility, my Mac-partition, disk0s1, is in exFat. I have no idea why.
    Thus, the original Mac-partition does not show up from either of the OS:es installed, more than disk0s1.

    My logs


    TestDisk 7.0, Data Recovery Utility, April 2015

    Disk /dev/disk0 - 121 GB / 113 GiB - 236978176 sectors (RO)

    D Mac HFS 235708600 236978135 1269536

    I think the "EFI System" belongs to Windows.
    The first Mac HFS is the partition I'm trying to save. (Unable to list files)
    The second Mac HFS is the recovery of the Mac, which is also corrupt.

    I don't know what I should do next. Didn't dare to "write partition structure to disk" after I clicked enter. Should I?

    What can I do to repair this corrupted partition?
    Thank you very much in advance.

    DiskWarrior might be a good option at this point.

    It couldn't rebuild it.
    Funny that it says that it's a Windows-drive.
