Do not run CHKDSK on it at all. First of all we need to find out why and how did it change to RAW.
Please shed some light on this step - how did it happen?
To recover data from the partition try using Recuva on it 
It is free.
Also you can recover data from such partitions using Volume Explorer tool from Paragon products (trial version for Backup & Recovery Home will work fine).
Not gonna happen.

If you have an external drive USB case and this is the issue,then attach the drive directly to a drive port on your system.
If that doesn't work,download a product called Getdataback for ntfs from and see if your files are recoverable.
