Help- can't see "\windows" folder when backup

My computer(Win 7 home premium) crashed with "bootmgr is missing" error
So I take out the harddrive and put it into a SATA-USB enclosure and connect to
second computer

Now I can see all the directory except "\windows" folder, what can I do to get the files out?

Thanks a lot
