Such attitude won't encourage helpful responses.

Unfortunately your posts have been unclear, and short on specifics. Restore is mostly about specifics.

If the partition's files can be accessed, but MySQL won't run on the partition, the first choice is to try to get MySQL running, which is why I inquired about that. If fixing that is actually impossible, you are limited to physical restore methods as described at http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.7/en/backup-types.html.

Physical & logical restore operations are extremely vulnerable to MySQL version differences. Restoration to the identical version is obviously least error-prone.

You've provided too little detail so far for responses to be other than general. Physical restore is easier for myisam than for innodb data. How and what to copy depends on if and how the server used the innodb storage engine, as described at
