    As long as the disk is still recognized by Windows, you can always try a data recovery program to scan the disk for lost content. Depending on what happened to it, you might be able to restore the partition, or restore (some of) the files.

    Formatting is just a matter of going to the Disk Management module in computer management and selecting the disk there. You can create a partition and format it from there.
