Had a scheduled Acronis backup begin when I remembered/noticed that a P2P utility was not shut down so, literally seconds after the backup had begun, I shult down the P2P.
Immediately got a popup from Acronis advising that the backup could not be completed/continued.

Inititated Acronis manually to restart the backup and it advised that the imaging process could not be done because the D: drive (the destination HDD for the backup) was not formatted!!! The popup console/window asked whether I wished to format the D: drive now??

I seem to have lost all the data on the slave drive in a matter of seconds!!! What the [bleep] is going on??

Please offer some counsel or method(s) to resolve this issue, if available!!

Any suggestions/tips etc. will be greatly appreciated!!

Can you see the drive if you look at it with explorer?
And does it have anything on it?
