The problem I'm having is the main partition on my WD HD is missing (or unrecognizable) and I know that the data is still there because I haven't written anything to it. Is there anyway for me to recover it and access the data?
This is a screenshot of the HD in disk management

The problem may be just a corrupt partition table. You can trying running the command prompt - cmd and running L: chkdsk /r/f with those following syntax. If that does not work try using a third party. If you still can not get it working correct, use Runtime's GetDataBack - www.runtime.org. Good luck.
