Good day. It took me around 3 hrs just to register to this site. What the heck was the "invalid XML message" anyway? I've enter all informations correctly but it won't process my registration until just now.
Anyway, that wasn't really why I posted this message. My concern was my 250GB Seagate ST3250318AS just suddenly crashed for no reason at all (or if there's any reason, I don't know). I've been into computers since 2004 (tweaking, upgrading, maintaining, formatting, modding, etc.) and this is the first time I've experience a total HDD crashing and out of the blue (meaning it didn't give any signs at all). I want to retrieve my important files, but all I can see now in my hard disk is 231.8 of unallocated space. It was partition into 52.8GB and 179GB. Any help how to retrieve my files? Thanks. Also, can someone tell me what are most likely the cause of this so that I may prevent another crash in the future? Thanks!

I have the same problem all the sudden my 2000 GB disk showing UNALLOCATED SPACE.
What happened I had already partitioned half of the drive about 900 GB in two drive which I placed data on them.
The other half was free and decided to partion with disk management on Vista did not finish completly tried again.
This morning when I turned the pc it gave me shock all unallocated and now have no access to data already stored
As fzabkar suggested I execute a third party program ( SIrun ) and showing the following report
mention that the drive ID is drive 0 in bois system and in this report:
REPORT: SEE ATTACHMENT PLEASE

You should be able to recover data with this ....Powerdatarecovery free edition, and have you tried allocating it in disk management, don't format it if it says you must, not until you've recovered your data anyway.
