Hello and welcome,

If the partition has been corrupted then you will need to use data recovery software to recover files. Can you load windows? Or can you use a spare system?
Regards,

Alan.

Hey there! If you can't boot Windows, you probably need to use some data recovery software to get your stuff back. You could try Selkie Rescue Data Recovery, which will work even if you can't boot Windows.. I used it awhile back and it worked really well. I hope that helps ya! :thumbsup:
