    Winternals requires a PC that boots, so Moss's method is probably going to be the solution.

    recover my files will recover approx 95% of files from your HDD should you be unable to see your files ising this method, be sure not to format your drive before running this program, and to have a sufficiently large HDD to transfer recovered data to, ege external drive.
