Hi,

Most likely because the partition has become corrupted.

Is drive D:\ a seperate hard drive from the C:\ drive or just a seperate partition on the same drive?

What can be done to fix it if anything and should I contact Dell to have them fix it or can I do it?

Hi,

If it's a laptop then that means the D:\ drive is part of the same hard drive so the partition is corrupt.

You need a program like this:

If you don't want to pay you can do this:

(1) Reformat the drive using a quick format
(2) Download Recuva here: Click here
(3) Install Recuva, run it and do a scan of the drive
(4) Recover any files you need

Thanks,
Rob

Done what you said and reformatted the drive am now doing deep scan for any lost files i might need. can you tell me what the purpose of the D: drive is and how I pay you more than $18.00 for you help

D:\ is probably the recovery partition on your computer if you dont use it. Not really needed if you have recovery discs.
