I started my computer and opened the windows explorer and I saw that a partition of 172 gb won't appear on the screen. I opened disk management and there it was showing 'free space' for that partition. How could the partition be formatted if I didn't formatted it? Is my hard drive corrupt? The partition that got formatted was not containing OS files. The partition was only 5-6 gb free. Is this happened due to excessive data in that partition? Is there any chance it will get formatted again automatically?

Is there any way or possibility to recover data from that partition?

Computer details -
OS - Windows 7 (32-bit)
HDD - WD Caviar Blue 500 gb
