You're working with a damaged partition.. Probably the first thing to do
would be to make a copy of the partition.
Get either a 16GB thumb drive, or an external drive that you can partition
appropriately.. then make a copy of the damaged partition --  This may be a
trial-and-error situation.

Once you have a good copy, then you can work on the copy.

If you get a laptop drive, then you can make multiple copies of the bad
partition(s) overnight and then try different recovery paths until you get
what you need.

If you only care about parts of the data, on the drive you can also try
mounting readonly -- and see if the data you want is available for copying
out without having to repair the entire partition.

mount -o ro /dev/sda7 /mnt/sda7
