Hey everyone -- trying not to panic here.

I have windows XP. I have 2 harddrives -- the C drive, which is the
original drive that came with my computer, and the F drive, a 250 gig
internal drive I installed a while back.

I turned on my computer today and the F drive is gone. It's not
showing up in explorer, in disk manager, and any files I try to find
on it are gone.

This drive had everything on it...I have no clue why it's not showing
up. I restarted my computer 3 times. I don't know what else to do.

I have no idea what happened -- it was fine last night.

Thank you so much.

Recheck your connections first. If everything is plugged in properly try disconnecting the data and power cable from the hdd and turn your computer on and then off, then reconnect it and start it and see if it is recognized.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
