Corrupt GPT 500Gb drive win8

#1 Post by fandaz » 07 Jan 2014, 22:10

I have a Win8 laptop which has become faulty. Tried to backup drive by removing and placing in windows 7 machine via USB caddie.
Windows 7 disk management asked about MBR OR GPT and I think I selected MBR mistakenly.
Have recovered most data using phototec but need to try and fix file structure.
Is there a way to do this, using backup MBR/GPT
Anyone else has this?
When in the laptop the drive/ boot partition is not seen.
The bios sees the drive though.
Plugged into external system (win7) the drive is seen as RAW.

Anyone know if this is fixable?
