Hard Drive Issue

I turn on my computer and it does it's usual BIOS check, CD/DVD drives detected, both hard drives detected, ect.
But when I boot into Windows, either XP or 7, my secondary hard drive shows up on Rainmeter as "0.0 B/0.0 B Used"
Every time I try to go into the drive it says "D:/ is not accessible. The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable."

I have 120GB of data on that drive I want to recover, a lot of my time and work are on it. Please tell me there is a way to get all the information, is not some of my most important information of the drive.

Check the hard drive with the manufacturer's diagnostic tools.

And, as far as recovering your files, I would try:

Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console


and if that method fails:
