    Hi

    I am having an IBM notebook which came with vista home basic
    pre-installed. Using VIsta disk management, I made partition on my HDD.
    After running for almost 6 months. my windows got some problem due to
    which I had to run recovery disk. After running recovery disk, although
    OS has been restored to original but my D: is missing. Its showing only
    c: to me now. I have checked in BIOS also. I am not sure whether it has
    merged the two drives if so. WHat about my data.

    Can yopu please suggest what to do.

    Thanks

    Using the recovery DVD you returned your computer to the same
    condition it was in when you bought it. There was no D then, so there
    is no D now.

    Whatever you had on D is now gone.
