    Raw means it's lost the partition table you need to get free specific partition recovery software once the partition is recovered the files will be there

    You can try the Disk Check from the Command Prompt; In the search bar or Start\Run command, type: CMD.exe, then type: chkdsk c: /r and press Enter.Worked for me yesterday solving the same exact HD problem.
