Windows 7: Drive missing

Drive missing

Last night windows installed two updates automatically KB976662 and KB979306.

Since then my resolution has been screwed up, my desktop is decentered, but worst of all a drive is missing!

Eek! I need the info on there!

One 40 gig drive was partioned into two, one being system and another 15 gig was labeled 'documents' [I used partition wizard home edition to do this].

Any ideas how to get this drive back? I'd REALLY like to get that data back. Please help if you can!

Thanks I tried that, but shadowexplorer doesn't recognise the drive because it is apparently now 'free space'...

any other ideas?

Yeah, from the disk management app it shows what was the drive as 'free space'...
