Is your D: another partition on the internal drive?
Did you reboot and see if it came back this time?

Please run diskmgmt.msc from the Run prompt in your Start menu and post a screenshot here.

For some reason the third partition no longer has a drive letter, that's why its not showing up in "computer". Is it just a data partition, if so right click on that partition in disk management/change drive letters and paths and assign it a letter.It should then show up if its not to damaged.

I have never used acronis disk detector so I don't know what the damage is, but I would get your important data off it as a precaution.

You could try this - http://crystalmark.info/software/Cry...o/index-e.html for more information on the problem with your disk

Glad you got it

I would run the crystal disk info I linked to above to see what the issue is with that disk.I would be concerned that it is throwing up errors and may be failing.
