Hi guys,

My computer froze, I had to hard reset. On the restart, my 1TB D drive had disappeared. It's now an unknown disk.
A similar thing happened recently, I renamed the drive in diskpart - it didn't work initially but then suddenly returned. This time only SSD shows up in diskpart.

I have data on the disk I'd like to try and recover but I'm aware the HDD might be dead.

Thanks in advance!

Here's a screenshot.

 
Model name of the disk?
Internal? external?

If sata disk in external USB connected enclosure, then try removing it from enclosure and connection directly with sata cables to a deskto pc.

If it's internal disk, already connected with sata cables, then for data recovery contact professional data recovery services.

Restarted my laptop again (not the first time) and D drive suddenly reappeared. Busy running a fresh backup - smiled on by the tech gods it seems.
