    Partitions disappeared


    I have 3 partitions on my HDD (WesternDigital 640gb): C, D and E. Everything was going fine but after I restarted my PC the D and E partitions were gone. I couldn't access anything on them from the shortcuts and the Disk Management window looks like this:

    and this is disk part screenshot:

    Is there any way at all to recover my partitions with the data on them or is it all lost and can't do anything about it?

    Weird dude, did u install anything or tried to partitioned.....??? try this free tool
    Easeus Data Recovery Wizard Free Edition - CNET Download.com
    u ll be able to get back some , there are few other tools as well. But you gotta find out what caused this as it is critical.
    Good luck, i have recovered partitions before ...

    reboot, check you drivers under device manager first before you do anything drastic.
