The Mac partition seem to be corrupted. You can use a data recovery program to recover the files and then reformat the partition.

Creating multiple partitions on the drive normally ends up damaging the drive.

Changes are you will eject one partition and not the other one.

Use a recovery software on the windows computer and reformat the hard drive.

You can use Recuva.
