Unmounted Hard Drive

Hi, I have a very strange problem. I've restored my PC from Acronis True Image Backup file, and one of my hard drives didn't show up. I checked it in the Disk Management, and this hd is there as an unmounted one. I don't know why this thing happened and what I supposed to do to fix it. Please can someone help me to solve this problem and just for my curiosity can someone tell me why this happened. Thanks for any help !!!!
