Hello,

My local disk D: disappeared, I can't see its icone, acess it, or the files in it. Even in disk management I can't find it.
Anyone has any idea how to fix this problem?

Thank you.

I think more information is needed and what changed/happened. Was the 270 the d: drive?

I think that's what I was following before D: went missing: diskpart === > list disk ===> select diskn ===> list partition ===> select partitionn ===> delete partition

But I dont recall typing precisely disk D or anything! By that time I didnt know that partition meant the disk, I was trying to remove cracks or something!

I want to recover the disk, even if It means i'll lose all the files in it, but if anyone knows a solution for both problem it would be a great help!

Thanks

What if you right-click the D in Disk Management?

Did you reboot your computer to see if Windows finds it and installs it?

It's worth a try. Reboot and see what happens. When your desktop starts to load there will be a notice in the system tray, bottom right side, that Windows has found a device and is installing it and when the device is ready for use.

Should I back up my files before reboot?

Backing up your files is not necessary. All you are doing is restarting your computer just as you would if you had to restart after any updates.

I tried to follow the tutorial, but it says "dynamic disk, GTP disk and bad disk are not supported".

From your original picture your optical drive has been assigned as D:

 

If you had a hard drive assigned as D: it was in the unallocated 240GB partition.  You may be able to recover the data that used to be on that partition if you really need it.  If you don't need the data assign the optical drive to another letter, and partition and format the 240GB unallocated part of the drive that is showing.
