    okay, heres long, sad story.. today I tried accessing a program, it locked up. that wasnt so bad, I restarted, and when it was rebooting, it started making a really weird loading noise, one I had never heard before. when I came in, I tried to access my music folder, and it made the same noise again for like 15 seconds and it wouldnt let me open it. I restarted and shut down many times, and then when I came in, my D Drive was gone!!! I got some good important stuff in there! is there any way to get it back???

    thanks!

    You might be able to use some file recovery software, should be able to find it by doing a search on the web. Depending on what brand of HD it is you could download the manufacturers disk diagnostic program which might be able to repair it enough where you can get your files off of it. But it depends whats wrong with the HD.

    To be truthful, it's not sounding all that good. For sure, you need to stop using that drive until you're ready to attempt recovery, but this is not a job for the novice.
