Welcome Desssssuone! No, I'm sorry you can't. The contents of the hard are inaccessible when in Recovery Mode. When you are booted into Recovery Mode, you are not booted into the OS/Firmware of the Zen (which is installed on the hard drive). The Recovery Mode is a host system recovery utility that operates outside of the firmware (within the ROM). So, it is independent of operation with or without firmware or a hard drive installed. The hard drive itself is partitioned into two partitions. One for the firmware and the other for user data. See this thread for more information regarding the filesystem.

Another case for my oldest saying "Backup your player then burn a disc of your backup" If your reading this and you don't have your player backed up then don't blame me. All it takes is one drop, getting thrown in a pool, getting caught in the rain, and you too could be screwed. BACKUP BACKUP BACKUP!

Yes, seriously. It's like those annoying "Vote" commercials that repeat "Vote" about 100 different times. Just substitute the word "Vote" with "Backup".

If you have any player seriously just back it up. Many people have askesd "how do i get my files back" guess what? You don't! Look if your a noob, back up your player it may not seem important but you will find out soon enough. BobbyRS and I have told many people this but still we see it every day. If you have an MP3 player you need to treat every day like it's yor last. Anything can happen, you just have to be ready

To the OP: Boot the ZVM into Recovery Mode and try doing a Reload Firmware from there. This way it will erase the currently installed and possibly corrupt firmware and allow you to install a new fresh version.
