    SSD Partition is gone and cannot be found

    Hello, I have a problem with my SSD drive. My SSD drive is a 240GB drive from Intel. Usually I have 2 partitions on this drive: Partition C (with all my programs) and Partition E (with all my data). I use this disk in my laptop and as of today I cannot boot that disk. The laptop keeps restarting sending me to the boot menu where I can select the drive, only to keep restarting and sending me back to that same bootmenu. Now, I have connected this SSD to a desktop computer and was hoping to backup my data. The problem that I have is that the drive only shows one partition, which is the C partition, and not the partition with my data. When I open disk management I can see the entire drive, and it shows the correct size of it, but in my explorer I can only see the R drive (which was my C drive in my laptop) and the data partition is nowhere to be found. See my image:

    As you can see Disk 2 (R) is my SSD. And only the laptop's C drive (now R) shows up. I have tried to refresh a couple of times in the explorer and also tried to change the drive path of the disk, which does not help. Can you guys help me to reach the data partition?

    Thanks in advance.

    Welcome to the forum. If the partition has gone you very specific free software to find it all files will come back with it there are lots of free ones if you Google free partition recovery software.
