I think you have just lost the data. you may need to check with physical recovery options
You need to look on the drive first if it has any partition and file system on it.
Use boot CD from Paragon Drive Backup 10 Server Trial:
to boot your machine from and look in graphic interface what you do have on this drive now.
It could be that NTFS.sys driver got corrupt or the MBR is a screw. So there is still hope.
Install DB10 - start it - Tools - Recovery Media Builder. It will help to create the CD.
Boot from it the problem machine and select there Normal mode - Drive Backup. What do you see there?

I suggested you a tool already. Did you make the Boot CD as recommended?
It has an Undelete Partition feature that could help you. Try it. In its interface - right click on free unallocated space and select Undelete Partition. Let it look for NTFS partition. When found - undelete it.
