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.

Try this site. They have a program that I reccomend called R-Studio.

is a family of data recovery and undelete utilities. Empowered by new unique data recovery technologies, it is the most comprehensive data recovery solution for FAT12/16/32, NTFS, NTFS5, and Ext2FS. It recovers data both on local logical and physical disks, as well as disks on remote computers over networks, even if their partition structures are damaged or deleted. RAID reconstruction and Dynamic disk support are included, as well as support for recovering encrypted files, compressed files, and alternative data streams. File/disk content can be viewed and edited in the hexadecimal editor. Flexible parameter settings give you absolute control over data recovering.
you can go and download the free demo
