You should find if it's a software (virus) or hardware problem (HDD
driver or board) failure.

My friend recently reinstalled WinXP and he could not see his secondary disk
after that. It turned out that without SP2 you can't see too large disks -
just a tip.

If you google on "NTFS partition recovery tool" you can see many hits and
some of them includes a downloadable tool that with those you can check it
they can see your lost partition / files so if they can you can buy the
product for recovery.

It is 137GB... (Just realized SP1 is enough to solve this problem)

There are drive and partition recovery tools you can look for on the
internet.  Just do "drive partition file recovery" in a search and
you'll find them.

Alternately, if you know what the partition was before it was damaged
(size, location, format, etc) then you might try recovering it by
simply re-creating the partition.  You'll need to look around for
instructions on how to do that without formatting any data.

But the drive recovery software should take care of that for you.

Once you recover what you need, completely re-format the drive - don't
use it once it's been 'fixed' as the new partition table may not
exactly match the old one, and you'll run into funny problems later.

Of course, if you can find what caused the problem in the first place,
then you can search for that and you'll have a better chance of
recovery.

Lastly, there are services that will do all this for you and drop the
data onto another hard drive, or CD-ROM.  If it's important data,
spend the money to get it back correctly rather than messing around
with it.

Good luck!

Get Data Back is the best thing I've seen for recovering information.
It will not "fix" your drive though, it only reads from the drive, so it
is a last resort recovery technique.  It works though.

DFSee, from:  http://www.dfsee.com

It's not a beginners' tool (but then disk recovery shouldn't be attempted by beginners! :-) but if you pay for it you can send the log files it generates
to the author and he will send back advice (and often scripts to run) to solve the problem.  It's not expensive and it's worth much more than it costs
- saved my life a number of times!  :-)

IMHO Ontrack Easy Recovery is a good choice. It let you recover files to
another hard disk without writting to it. Just take a look in Omtracks
WEB site for other options.

http://www.ontrack.com/easyrecoveryprofessional/

I trust their software, it saved me a couple of times and I choosed it
because most hard disk manufactures uses Ontrack software to partition
their HD. :-)

Hope this helps and good luck.
