I have a problem & arrived at this website for the first time today searching for a way to recover my data.
In brief, I can see an icon for my "D Drive" which is my slave drive. It had been working very well until yesterday. Now I can only see that it exists as an icon, but I cannot see or open any of the files on it (mostly photos, I'm a photographer).
From what I have read on this site, it *may* be that my partition table is shot. But that's just a possibility. I'd be very thankful for any other possible ways to fix this problem.
For what it's worth, in the Computer Management/Disk Management area of my Control Panel, the D drive is visible and it says "Healthy". I don't know if I should find comfort there, but it's helping me to keep hope alive : )
If any of you reading this have had an experience or know of someone who has totally lost access to their files on one drive - but has not formatted or erased or otherwise harmed their disk, *please* let me know a good next step. There are no bad sounds coming from the disk drive, and I have checked to make sure the connections are good.
