I have 2 hard drives jumpered into my computer:

1. 20GB Western Digital (C:)
2. 160GB Seagate (D:)

I used to have no trouble accessing the D: as my default drive was C:, but recently the D: only occasionally appears on My Computer, and now when it does it states that the drive needs reformatting, and to do this I would have to delete everything off D:, which I don't want to do, as I saved alot of my files in the hard drive when my 20GB was quickly filled up.
I can't access D: anymore properly, and on top of that when it is connected it will sometimes vanish off My Computer.

This may have been triggered when I tried to copy all my files from C: and use D: as the default drive, which after attempting I realised wouldn't work, but when I set it back, its gone like this.

Any help appreciated,

Hi adsman, and welcome to BleepingComputer.

How did you set the hdd back?

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