Hello,i have 250 gb sata hard disk. c drive=60 gb , e=40 gb, f=40 gb, g=45gb, h=45 gb. A problem occured today that 4 of the drives were invisible.
only c drive was seen
so I checked in disk management, there was 170 gb unallocated memory ,so I gave a drive name
but now when I try to open that drive ,it is asking to format that drive . can i recover my drives without formatting.?
can I recover my files because there are very important files and i dont have any backups?
I kindly request anyone please provide me a solution.
god bless you

You can try file recovery software: http://pcsupport.about.com/od/filerecovery/tp/free-file...

When finished recovering, re-format those faulty partitions, but if problem persists you will have to replace the drive with a new one as data loss will become worse and it will eventually "break" your Windows installation.

If your desperate enough to try to save your data, buy http://www.grc.com/spinrite.htm

Your hard drive may have gotten corrupted somehow and SpinRite is pretty good at fixing data corruption that's if the drive itself hasn't received any physical harm. And you should always back up your data on another hard drive or on a cd/dvd. Using the same drive (even when using multiple partitions) is risky when you have important data.
