Looks as though your second disk (D: I assume) has gone walkabout. as it is not even detected. Have a look in System/Device Manager/Disk Drives and see if it is there. I doubt it will be but worth a look.

If not open up your computer and check that the cables to the disk are seated properly at BOTH ends.

Just a thought: Was your "D" Drive a USB one that is not currently plugged in?

Make and model of laptop?

Assuming you have a 120GB SSD and a second HDD?

As alanwood suggested you may have to open the laptop and check the drive has not come loose.

OK so if it is a laptop does it have 2 different physical drives installed or is it one drive partitioned into 2 different partitions allocated C and D.

It would seem from the graphic that it is the former as the full drive 0 is shown.
