62Gb of porn...man thats a lot of porn to loose.

Try going to the WD web site and downloading their drive diagnostic tools to see if they find a problem.

I have Panda Platnium running.... I doubt it's a virus... this is a separate drive from my windows drive.. i have this drive with just mp3 movies and all my application instal files. divided into three sections just like that... then last night i go to watch a movie and i notive i don't see my MOVIE drive... it changed to Local Disc D: and when i click on it it now says Drive is not formatted.... then i went insane and then i got calm and went back to THG.... now the good thing is that i have like 30GBs backup already and as we speak DC++ is in FULL BLAST.... so in a few days my library will be fully replenished, but that's besides the point thanks for any help you guys can give me on getting this information back.

You can try using Active Partition Recovery to rewrite the partition to the partition table. If that fails you can try File Scavenger to recover the data from the corrupt partition.
