since a day or 2 i have the idea someone has been hi-jacking my pc, probably using svchost.exe svchost.helper
since last night all of a sudden my d-drive is gone. i have divided my hard drive into c, d, e and f. now d is gone. hopefully, not for good.
can anyone tell me how i can get my d drive back or how to be able to access and see it again?
i'm at a loss now :whistling:
thanks a lot in advance

If you are running XP what does it say about the "D" drive in disk management( control panel/perf & maint/ administrative tools/computer management/disk management). You can probably reformat the drive by right clicking on it.

i had done that already by checking it on another site
i did the same as you did in a shorter route:

bottom left start>run>compmgmt.msc and then as you suggested

to no avail

when i was using my pc all of a sudden a message appeared saying that my d disk would close down

since then the d part of my hd is gone completely with all the info, photos, films, docs etc. i had installed upon it

i am at a loss now

is it completely gone. i guess of my 60 GB hd it took up about 15 GB

thanks for replying!

That is why I suggest having a Linux Live CD, such as Knoppix. You can look at things without having to deal with Windoze and if there is a virus or something which is causing the problem, it can be hard to look at otherwise.

You could try running chkdsk on the D: drive and see if there is some file corruption or some other problem.
