Your Raw Partition is showing EXT4 which is a linux file system. Windows will not see that. You can download a linux distro like Puppy linux. Burn the iso and boot to the Puppy desktop. Your partitions are shown in the lower left and labeled sda1...sda1... Click once on the partition. It will automatically mount and open a File Manager.
Copying files are a little different in Puppy. Click once on the partition that you want to copy to. A file manager will open. Highlight the files/folders in the EXT4 partition. You can highlight by holding the Ctrl key and left clicking or by windowing around the files/folders. Left click and drag the highlighted folders from the EXT4 file manager window to the partition file manger you are copying to. A small dialog window will open. Select Copy and check the Quite box.
You can burn an iso in Windows 7 by right clicking the Puppy iso and selecting Burn Disk Image.

Just to clarify your data that was on E: NTFS is now D: EXT4?
Run R-studio for Windows for Linux.
If that does not see your files try Minitools Data Recovery or Easeus Data Recovery. Minitools will let you recover 1GB for free to see if the files are recoverable. Easeus will let you recover up to 2GB at most.
One software that is more powerful but expensive is Diskinternals Partition Recovery.

situation is: originally
HDD =320 GB
C= 80 GB
E= 120 GB
H= 120 GB
1) installed UBUNTU: GRUB doesn't opened on boot to select OS, only windows booting so,
opened ubuntu instalation and clicked on REVERT result,
C= around 80 gb
E= 88 gb
H= 88 gb
unallocated space = 47 gb around
Now tried to extend C result
C= 80 gb aprox (opening)
D(E)= 136 gb RAW (Not opening)
E(H)= 88 gb(opening)
possible solution : 1) get data from D, around 40 GB and format D
2) copy data from E (H) and format it too
3) Rearrange partitions to extend C
4) Load Linux OS
C= 120 GB
D= 100 gb
E= 100 gb
Win 7 unaffected
grub coming to select OS

I don't think you needed to REVERT. Boot Repair may have worked to repair Grub or using the install disk to update Grub. But, that would be a question for the linux forum. I am hoping the software I linked to will help. If not you can run TestDisk for Windows and see if it finds any lost partitions but changing from NTFS to EXT4 is the problem.
Posted 27 October 2015 - 11:29 AM
It looks like you have overlapping partitions. I would download Testdisk for Windows here. Unzip to the desktop. Scan the disk. Do a Quick Search on the disk. It will list partitions it finds. Highlight the partititon that is RAW. Press the "P" key. Does it list your files?
If TestDisk does not detect the partition then do a Deeper Search.
Edit: If you see your files listed, you can highlight each file/directory with the ":" key. Then press upper case "C". This will copy the files to the directory you unzipped Testdisk to or you can use the arrow keys to select the copy location. See if you can copy a few files first.

Instead of trying to recover a partition I would scan the drive with the software I linked to. Edit:Did you try the Deeper Search? If that does not work and the software I linked to in post#5 does not find anything then I think you may need a professional data recovery service.

Yahoo!!! minitools data recovery rescue me out...............Thanks JohnC_21 got my data back.
1- Can I format my D drive now?
2- but need to rearrange capacity of my HDD: C, D, E. drives is there any tool to do that without disturbing win OS?
3- want to install user friendly Linux how is kali? and ubuntu?

Minitools Partition Wizard can help you rearrange your partitions. Are you planning on installing linux again. If you are simply leave the space on the disk reserved for linux as unallocated.
From your previous post:
C= 120 GB
D= 100 gb
E= 100 gb
Win 7 unaffected
Start Partition Wizard and post a screenshot. This will help me see how you should go about doing the partition moves or you can see Partition Wizards website to see how operations are done. All steps are virtual so nothing is done until apply is pressed. This will let you back out of the steps if you made a mistake. Even though I never had a problem with Minitools Partition Wizard you should always back up your important data before doing any partition management.
Before you install linux I recommend you see this tutorial on installing Ubuntu on a WIndows 7 computer. Even if you do not install Ubuntu it will help.
Edit: And I am glad you were able to retrieve your data. I would install Ubuntu, not Kali. Kali is for penetration testing. You may also want to look at linux Mint.
