It sounds like it got formatted, Im not sure how, it could be a plethora of reasons, there are programs to recover lost data though so if you had important stuff on there you may be able to get it back with some expense

I feel for you - data loss is no joke. Try a program called 'Recuva', it's by Piriform and it's free. You can get it here :
