Question Recovering Data from Encrypted Drive

I have a laptop HDD from years ago that was encrypted with TrueCrypt. Had Windows 7 on it and I had to enter the TrueCrypt password to launch Windows.

After failing to launch the drive on my current PC (get error message: F3-F100-0008), I tried to decrypt the drive using TrueCrypt. Mounting the drive normally didn't work so I checked "mount using pre-boot authentication") and the drive mounted. The drive had three partitions and only one of the partitions worked to mount.

However, this is where things go south for me. By default, Windows assigned the drive letter K, after mounting, a seperate drive was created under Z. Opening the newly mounted Z drive, the drive seems empty.

I opened the drive in Recuva, and I got an error message saying "failed to scan drive: invalid drive size"

At this point, I don't really know what else to do. Any suggestions?
