Can't access hard drive

Discussion in 'Computer Information' started by Mike the Kiwi, Oct 28, 2004.

  1. I have two physical hard drives installed on my AMD 1GHz Duron computer, a Maxtor 40GB and a Maxtor 20GB which carry 3 partitions,
    C:(PRIMARY), D:(STORAGE), E:(XP DATA), with partitions C: & E: on the 40GB HDD and D: being the whole 20GB HDD.
    Yesterday after running a Global defrag with Vopt v7 a message window appeared instructing me that it would be necessary to run
    Chkdsk at next startup for some reason. I allowed it to go ahead and do this, but when it finished the name of D: had changed from
    "STORAGE" to "Local Disk", and now if I select D: it tells me that it is not formatted. There seems to be no way I can access any
    of the 12GB of information I had on it. Can someone please tell me what happened and if there is any way I can retrieve any data
    off of this Hard drive?
    Thanks for your help. All assistance is greatly appreciated.

    Cheers
