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 www.recuva.com 
It is free.
Also you can recover data from such partitions using Volume Explorer tool from Paragon products www.paragon-software.com (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 www.runtime.org and see if your files are recoverable.
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.
