To uncompressed you simply go to drive properties and unselect the 'compress drive to save the disk'

Uncompressed via save mode , Scan or run check disk by selecting  "automatic fix file system error', restart system again into save mode and Start \ Run (Sfc \Scannow), it may may ask OS cd, after finish restart and try compressing..etc.

connect the disk as second drive to a working pc with the same OS it has
then select the disk - and properties - uncompress
**you can try the same from a live windows cd - but i never tried it :
