    What program put them there? Some kind of archive or image backup program? If it's just raw files you should be able to directly access them.

    Live and learn. I would never put my data in a backup/compressed state that has to rely on 3rd party software to access it. ... nor would I backup to a partition where a partition Table failure would wipe it out.

    Hopefully you'll find a utility that can access the archive or image. I'm not sure what state the backup is in.
