When a previously readable/useable partition reflects a RAW file system...that's indicative that the NTFS file structure is damaged.

The typical thing to try would be to use a file recovery program...to see if it can read/salvage any of the files.

See comments by Quietman at http://www.theeldergeek.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=36698.
