Windows 7: How do I convert Raw partition?

How do I convert Raw partition?

I was told if I do chkdsk /r /f d: and that it would convert Raw to NTFS. But, it states file system is NTFS even though it is listed as Raw. I think this the reason that I am not able to boot up into the new WD HDD 1TB because it's Raw.

Windiws 7 x64

i have two hard drives cloned. One of them has two partitions. On the computer before cloning via clonezilla I had :C and :E on one drive and the second new hard drive I cloned D.

Therefore, in the picture Data D actually has data cloned from the D drive ; but is listed under letter C. The data from the C drive was named Program Files and it's not seen under label. I believe it is the Raw file because the size matches. The data from the E drive that was cloned is listed in picture under letter F.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance. How do I fix the Raw issue. I cloned the drives because I believe there were bad sectors.

I have attached a screenshot of what I am referring to.

Okay. Will I still keep my data or will it remove it? I'm trying to keep the data. Thanks

If it manages to recover the partition, everything will be on it.

Scan and see what it comes up with.

I had a similar issue recently. Only Aomei was able to recover the partition.

I am going to try to clone that drive again; but, use AOMEI backupper. There seems to be some bad sectors on that drive.
