My Secondary hard drive has disapeared. I can see the drive on Disk Management but it isnt listed under "My Computer" so i thought i would check to see if was showing up a under Disk Management and it shows but the drive states "UNALLOCATED" it also shows up in the Device Manager under Disk Drives I've tried everything possible and I don't wanna lose any data from the drive if possible any suggestions or a solution would be very helpful thanks

Maybe you can disconnect the drive then boot up. Then shutdown again, re-connect the drive and boot again. Not sure what else you can do.
Maybe the drive is faulty.
