After an automatic upgrade my PC restarted, it then showed a message it had encountered a problem and would have to restart. When it started again my D drive was missing. In system tools the drive an asmedia ASMT1153e was showing as having a capacity of zero and free space of zero, it should have a file system of NTFS but it is showing as blank. How can I get the drive back again as I have a lot of programs on it?

EDIT:
use UBUNTU live to check if the drive is detected there correctly
eventually check the USB device with a different PC

check the correct seating of the drive inside the external USB case
