Open a terminal in dom0:
use qvm-block to identify the HDD.
Then do what awokd suggested: start a qube and use qvm-block to attach
the relevant partition to that qubes.
Use qvm-block to ensure that the HDD partition is attached.
Open a terminal in the qube.
Check that the relevant partition appears as /dev/xvdi
sudo mount /dev/xvdi /mnt
Confirm contents of /mnt
Open Qubes restore tool
Select qubes, click on ... button.
If that doesn't work, then you can try use command line tool:
Always watch for errors on commands.
