- Hard Disk Failure - Please help!

I have an additional hard disk that I was using to store my files on
during a reformat of my main c: drive. I reformatted and everything
went ok, I was still able to access the additional disk, yet today, for
some reason when I go into "my computer" I am unable to access the
drive. After some delay windows informs that it is not formatted and
asks if I want to reformat.
Does anyone have any advice on programs / measures that I could take to
attempt to recover data on the drive?

First, you need to determine whether it's a Windows thing. Watch closely
right after you turn your computer on, and there likey will be directions on
how to enter system setup (BIOS). It's often F2 or Esc or Del, sometimes F1
or F10. Once in BIOS, look at your general bios settings, where your
attached drives and storage are listed. Is your problematic hard drive in
