As topic, I received an error on my W2K system "The Disk in Drive D is not formatted, Format is Now?".

Yes, it is a W2K (Windows 2000 Professional) system. It's an old reliable system that I use it as a file server.

Last night, I noticed some files disappeared on my D: drive. I restarted my computer and then I couldn't access my D: drive anymore. When I try to access it, it pops up with an error message stating "The Disk in Drive D is not formatted, Format is Now?".

Any suggestion of what would cause this kind of problem and how to recover data?

And yes, I did use Google to search for some answers, and I have 2 possible solutions on my hands right now, HDD regenerator and Partition Table Doctor. I am just curious if anyone have any other suggestion.

Thank you very much! :)

Partition Table Doctor does the job. One simple click "bootfix" and now I see my partition.
I'll need to recover my data fast and get a new hard drive.
