Default [Q] Stuck in Boot Loop Without Access To Recovery

Hi

I have an AT&T HTC ONE that is stuck in a bootloop. I can go into fastboot mode but not my recovery. I wanted to try to reflash the recovery but whenever I try to flash it on my Win 8.1, it says waiting for device. However, the prompt "adb devices" does not detect my phone.

!) I have installed SDK Tools.
2)I have HTC sync installed for the drivers.
3)I have the recovery image

Any help would be great.

Side Question:

If I factory reset and reinstall clockwork recovery, will I still be able to access my back up or does factory reset wipe everything???


Thanks.
