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

i bought an external 1GB Harddisk and saved this damaged partition. Furhter on i tried:
<e2fsck -f /mnt/AIRY-1TB/sda7.part>

The output is in german, sorry. However i dont know when i should to press "yes", so i only pressed "y".

Then i started <testdisk /mnt/AIRY-1TB/sda7.part> and he found ".", ".." and i copied "." to some place on my external disk. I could recover my .thunderbird :-)
