Hi vivek4844,
I'd like to help you, based on your did you try to check the same partition in disk management? You may follow the steps below to resolve the issue.

1) Check if that partition exists in the "Disk Management"
1. From the Desktop, bring the mouse to the lower left-hand corner of the screen. This will bring up a small Start menu preview screen.
2. Right click with the mouse, and a list if options will appear.
3. From this list, click on Disk Management, which will launch the window on the desktop
2) If you notice a partition without a drive letter, then right click on it
1. Select "Change Drive Letter and Paths"
2. Click on add button and select a drive letter
3. Click ok and you should be able to view your data on this partition.
Good luck
Lincon_ WD.
