Hello - there is a program called recuva (Piriform.com). If it does not work for you, try googling for "how to take ownership of inaccessible partition"/ Good luck - Amos

If Recuva doesn't work ...

try other data recovery programs like GETDATABACK or ZERO ASSUMPTION RECOVERY. Or pay a professional company for their magic tricks.

Success not guaranteed at all. That's why we backup.

I deleted your post. The link you gave has nothing to do with this discussion, so I treated it as spam advertising.

recover the files by data recovery software

Do not format the partition.
You may recover the files in it by some data recovery software. I suggest diskgenius(www.dgisok.com).
