So prior to dual boot I had my C drive, with windows installed, programs, etc. and I had another NTFS partition( E: ) (approx 250GB) for just data. Using my unallocated space (approx 50GB) I created another partition and used it to dual boot with. Upon booting back into Windows 7 I realized that my second partition for data ( E: ) had disappeared completely and gone back to unallocated space. How did it go back to being unallocated? Why? What is the best tool recommended for partition/data recovery? Please help. Thanks!

This is my favorite freebie.

It will at least verify that the drive is still present and give you the ability to recover the files.

However, have you right clicked my computer>manage and checked disk management? Sure you have, but there's a possibility something went nutty with the second install and you need to remount/initialize/whatever.
