If it is plugged into another computer can the files be seen then? If not the drive itself has probably failed. How old is it?

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Look for that drive in Windows Disk Management. If it shows up there, post any and all information shown for that drive.

No backup storage method is infallible, especially if it's mechanical/electrical. Hopefully you have a 2ndary backup.

Sometimes it is just the partition table that is corrupt, try http://www.easeus.com/partition-man... this might be able to repair it so the disk is readable again.
Failng that Gparted bootable cd, can check the partitions

Recuva is a photo recovery program

A thank you would be nice, if I have helped.
