Hard Disk Needs Formatting: Is Data Retrieval Possible Before Formating?

reachoppy
My laptop has refused to boot and internal recovery couldnt be done. The Recovery discs i created when i got the laptop was employed but the laptop couldnt read from the disc. The Hard disc was removed and attached to an adaptor and connected to another laptop via usb. The laptop read the hard drive, revealing 3 partitions or so: System(f), Hard disc(g) and Recovery(h). The partitions opened except Hard Disc(g). Think the system attempted opening it and eventually said something like 'the disc needs to be formatted'. Please, i dont want to loose my data, what can i do to retrieve my data? My laptop is a windows 7 system. Thanks all.
