    It could be a month ago, my laptop suddenly restarted and and before the windows loading some kind of process happened and I could not understand why? Today I am very suspect about my file lost over my d: dive physical drive not ssd caused after that restart. I am so worried to lose my files over my d drive where all my work files taking place. I have to mention the I have lost several files on my d drive and there were not all under same folder! but all in D drive. My C drive where my windows running is a SSD drive. I need an urgent help to figure out the problem and recover all my files

    :)

    D: drive disappeared

    Welcome to Ten Forums vm303

    Your Disk 1 reappeared later without you doing anything, so it looks like a loose cable was the most likely cause.

    The windows update was almost certainly just a coincidence. When you looked in Disk Management you probably didn't see your Disk 1, so you incorrectly assumed that the partition with no drive letter was the missing 'D:'. In actual fact it was most likely to have been your hidden Recovery partition. The size of 809MB and only getting 'Help' with a right-click would be consistent with that.

    That confirms that you are looking at a Recovery partition.

    Now that D: has reappeared (with a different letter now) we know that it was in fact a completely separate disk, not a partition on your Disk 0 as you thought. Now you have your Disk 1 back again, I suggest you check all the cables and connections for that drive. We don't want it to disappear again.

    That also means that your steps 4-6 were unnecessary and need to be undone. The correct ID for a Recovery partition on an MBR disk such as yours is 27. Here are screenshots of a similar MBR system disk to show how it should look after you have set everything back the way it was.

    D drive

    Hi,

    Based on the details you have provided us, it appears that there might be some corrupted contents on the said partition. We can also consider that this is caused by a virus.

    For us to check if a certain virus is hiding your files, kindly follow the steps below:

    • Type Command prompt in the search bar.
    • Type-in the following command:

      attrib -h -r -s /s /d D:\*.*
    • Press Enter to execute the command.

    If you think that there is nothing important stored in it, then we suggest that you reformat your D drive so that you can use the free space for important files.

    You can follow the steps below to start with the process:

    • Click on the File Explorer.
    • Select This PC.
    • Right-click on your D drive, then click on Format.
    • Follow the on-screen process to finish formatting the partition.

    Let us know how it goes so that we can further assist you.
