Windows 7: Logical drive disappeared

Logical drive disappeared

I have my Windows 7 laptop hard drive partitioned into 4 logical drives. Everything was working fine, but when I recently booted up one of them had disappeared. Minitool Partition Wizard shows the space as "unallocated" while Windows Computer Management shows the space as "free". Is there any way of re-allocating the space without destroying all the data that is (presumably) still there?

Fortunately I found software (Minitool Power Data Recovery) which was able to recover my data.
