How to recover data from a RAW file type drive?

Hi. I ran a chkdsk /f on my secondary HDD (after installing a steam game didn't work because there was "no space left" on my half full 500 GB drive) and it returned saying it could not go through because it was in a RAW file type. I now also cannot see any actual files on the drive, just folders. After doing some quick research, I see that there is software that can fix these, but I can't figure out how to use any/make any work. I also have no idea what caused this. Can anyone shed some light? Thanks.

    Thanks for the info! Turns out, after restarting my computer and windows running it's auto repair on my C: drive (?) all the files are back and usable. I will definitely use your answer for next time
