I have restored an image created by Macrium from my external hard disk which became now unllocated for reasone I didn't now. After the restoration successfuly completed, I closed the macrium environement. Then, after my computer restarted I found that there is a window telling me this:
Windows Manager Boot:
Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem:
1- insert your windows installation dis and restart your computer.
2-choose your language settings and then click 'next'
3- click repair your computer.
if you don't have this disc, conatact your system adminstrator.

I booted from Macrium Secure CD version 4.0, which has an option to fix the boot error. Then, I choose fix boot error.
There were four optitions, Which I think were:
Master Boot Recored
Unique Hard Code
Boot Database configuration

After fixing Boot, my system booted correctely.
However, I was shocked that my external hard dirve which mostly has all my very important data has been unllocated. So my system didn't recognised my hard drive.
I am quite sure that I didn't do anything wrong because I am quite keen.
I didn't do anything so far(such as format or created), so could you please let me know if I could do anything to let my drive keep all the data stored on it.
Could you please help me becuase this hard Drive has everything(Images, programs, and data) I did two years ago? It is exactly my archeive.

Even when I resore my system from recovery disk, the same thing is

This is the hard disk management::

Could you please at least give me any program to help me to recover all my data stored on my hard drive which became unllocated. I didn't proceed anything until now because I am afraid that if I had recreated it all the data inside it would be permentely deleted and would not be able to recovered.
It would be highly appreciated if you could help me.

you could give this a try:

you may need to format the partition first to give it a drive letter so the software can see it.
