I'd try a recovery tool like R-studio r-tt.com and see if you can see the partition. If you did not actually write out to the drive you should be able to recover the data.

I have used a couple of free data recovery software and I can see the drive but it reads 150 gb used 0 bytes free yet it says unformatted. Another odd thing is the primary drive reads fine.
