I'm pretty sure I just screwed everything up, but hopefully someone can help.

I ran into some heavy malware/virus/I don't know what issues with my computer, and I finally reached the point where I used the Windows Recovery tool to reinstall the system. I have two drives, C: and F: as master and slave drives. Everything important is on F:, so I wasn't worried about starting clean on C:, where Windows was installed. The reinstall seems to have taken fine, except for drive F: is missing, and drive E: (which I didn't have before) can't be accessed because it's not formatted.

My instinct here is that drive E: is what used to be my drive F:. My question is how can I get back into F: without formatting it? I am not kidding when I say everything was on that drive. I backed up the really, really important stuff, of course, but there are a lot of sentimental value files in there that I'd really like back if I can get to them.

Thanks in advance.
