Get backup after raspberry pi is broken

My raspberry is probably dead, and so I took off my sd card and inserted it on my Debian laptop to get a back-up of the directory that I was working on. The home/username/ directory is empty and revealing hidden files doesn’t make any difference as it shows only three visible files (.bashrc, etc) and all other files are missing. .

Is there a simple way to recover the specific directory from the external sd-card?

Depends on what you are looking for. Usually we don’t store specific data in user home directory.

Maybe you could be more specific on what files you missing

Sorry my bad. All user files, they were all stored within /root directory, so it seems I was searching for them in the wrong dir.
