Isnt there a GUID that identifies NTFS? (diskpart)

I have a drive that has somehow converted itself to RAW format. I know that I have converted a drive in a similar situation back to NTFS using a simple command in diskpart. I have tried using set id=07 but I am pretty sure that I have used something much longer like a GUID. I cannot find any GUIDs for format types on the web anywhere now. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am of course trying to retain the data so formatting the drive isn't an option at this time.

    For RAW drives the important files often can be saved.

    On a rare occasion chkdsk can convert RAW to NTFS but most often chkdsk cannot run on RAW drives.

    If you do find a command using diskpart that can frequently convert RAW to NTFS without data loss please post it in this thread.
