    Thanks for all your replies.

    It is not my laptop, so unfortunately, there is no backup. I can't access the drive using any of the methods I mentioned. I think it may have 2 partitions as I could access the 2nd partition when I had the disk in my Windows 7 PC but it was a very small partition and there were no files to recover. I will look at the MFT recovery software, that might be my only option to recover the files.

    Then I guess I will do a fresh install once I recover the files.
