I need you to 3 things.
1. Change your view to tree view click on places and scroll down to tree view.
2. Expand PQ, OS & 3gig system. I need a screenshot.
3. On OS you need to check everything in folder because I see linuxmint & grldr.
It looks like windows folders but it also looks like it's mixed.
I've read the manual and looked on dell support. It seems there are two ways to access the recovery partition. on is to press F8 whilst booting. The other is to press CTRL + F11. Neither work for me. I'm thinking it may be down to me setting up a dual boot with Ubuntu - the grub boot loader may have screwed something up.
You may need something a little stronger then it appears that you have restored most of os using test disk.
That's why I said to exppand those folders. It also looks like you have a grub loader on windows partition.
Were you installing linux mint while booted?
You obviously have grub on your usb.
When you boot in how many entries do you have in grub?
Did problems start when you installed grub to usb?
The reason I say that is maybe your grub on usb can be configure to boot windows, via usb.
Does linux mint have os-prober?
These are questions that need to be thought about before goig down the rest of thos list of options.
