I'm not sure I've picked the right category to ask this but ......
I'm running Windows XP Pro. Tons of Ram, etc. No problem there.
I was running some maintenance programs cleaning up stuff that gathers on your CPU. Suddenly, my screen went blank and I had to go to safe mode to finally get my XP to run properly again.
When the smoke had cleared, all was well EXCEPT my second hard drive (D-drive ) was completely gone. I'm not talking about a partition, I mean the separate hard drive. It does not show up on explorer, does not show up on any locations where it should show, just completely disappeared. I can't find any trace of it.
Can anyone please help me restore it and how to do it?
