Hello,

I have two disks in my PC, SSD and HDD. On SSD I have installed Windows and few games and on the HDD I have all my data. A few minute ago I have been playing a game, game freezes and I had to reboot PC. After reboot I see my HDD as unknown and it is not inicialized, but I can see it in disk manager. I have a lots of for me valuable data on my disk and don't want to lose it. Can I inicialize it again? Or what should I do to save my data? It haven't make any sounds of dying disk. Please help.

Thank you :)

Your data is probably lost (where is the backup?).

The best hope of regaining your data files is to contact a company spechialized in data recovery.

If you're going on thinking do recovery yourselv, then there is a risk that you loose the files for good when attemting to use some questionable data recovery software.
So you're with two options : try recover yourselv (cheaper but also greater risk of loose all data permanently) - or having a professional company to recover your data (expensive and less risk to loose all data).

So I guess it boils down to how important your data is for you and how much you're willing to pay to retreive those.

Thanks for reply.
Yes, I know, I'm very irresponsible for not having back up, it's my fail and now I'm gonna pay for it. I will probably won't try anything alone and will hand it to specialists to recover my data.
