  1. Try GetDataBack. I had a few problems with damaged HDDs in the past, but GetDataBack was almost always capable of saving most of my data from even drives not recognized by the OS. Give it a try!
  2. try to connect the drive as external in a case start the other system then plug this drive in a usb slot ,use this to see if it could recover your files it's free http://www.piriform.com/recuva
  3. i try recuva didnt work because the drive has to be formatted im afraid i will lose data if i format
