Hello everyone, i'm new here so please bear with me if i make any mistake..
Yesterday i found out that my local disk D: had disappeared, i tried everything but i couldn't find it anywhere, it wasn't in "computer" nor "disk management" and not even listed in the bios..
The weird thing is that i couldn't even extend the C: to reclaim the space that was used by the D: drive which means the space was lost too ?? how is that possible ? was there a problem with the cables or the spinningness of the disk ? or is it just a problem with drivers or something ??
But this morning the drive came back by itself and it stayed there for like 30 minutes after i found it, and just as i was trying to upload my most important files to the cloud it disappeared again and there was no sign of it anywhere again.
Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
Probably a physical failure of the hard disk. The disk needs to be replaced and Windows re-installed. Some people have had temporary success with data recovery after cooling the disk at zero degrees for 2 hours or more.
Have you tried to run check disk command for this drive? It might be possible that drive has some bad sectors and that's why you are facing this issue. I suggest you to run check disk command to get your drive analysed for bad sectors.
