OK well i screwed up... i typed clean in disk part thinking it would clean just the selected partition, well it gets the whole disk. So i ended up loosing 450 gbs worth of data. Is there any way i could possibly get it back? I had one 60 gb partition at the beginning of the 1tb disk, and the rest a partition. now its one big unallocated piece.

im doing alota this right now :bang head:bang head:bang head:bang head

Yep, just don't write anything more to it, you should be able to recover data using software recovery tools. You can format it if needed, some tools need a drive letter to access it.
I normally use ontrack easy recovery and it works well. Recuva may work also, as a free option to try.
