D drive has unrecognised file sytem.

I cannot open the D drive at all.It says it needs formatting and has a unrecognised file system.This is strange because ive only created windows images.
Any ideas what is happening here please.?

Hi,

Please post a screen capture image of your Disk Management window.

1. Click
2. Right-click on Computer
3. Click Manage

In the window that open, click Disk Management. Maximise it and take the screen capture image.

Hi,

The RAW format requires that you format the disk, but you should first try to recover data from it, before you do that.

Please have a look at this thread to help you with that.

At this point you have rather well shot yourself in the foot.
You can order recovery media:

In the meantime, before I say just format the partition as NtFS, try:

TestDisk - data,partition, disk recovery software - cgsecurity

Recuva - Undelete, Unerase, File and Disk Recovery - Free Download

File recovery - photos,videos,docs - cgsecurity

Oemailrecovery CD DVD HDDVD Blu-Ray Recovery Free

following product is excellent and expensive
GRC Hard drive data recovery software

following product is excellent and not expensiveActive@ File-recovery

D drive is not recognised

hi.
I dont see how this has happened but it must have been the reinstallation of os.
Im not going to waste any more time trying to download this and that to cure it.
Problem is it will not even let me format the drive.
I have easeus partition manager.can i not just merge them and eliminate this partition altogether?
