Unplug the drive with the affected partition. Let that drive be still and cool off for a while. Then run chkdsk on the C: drive. Don't try to fix anything yet! Just take stock of the situation.
If the system doesn't seem stable with just C:, then shut it off, and let both drives cool. If C: looks OK, then concentrate on saving files from there. Make backups right away. Once that's done, then run chkdsk again, and attempt to fix any errors. If there are, rerun chkdsk until it comes up clean. If the system crashes during this procedure, then reinstall Windows.
After you're certain that you have a stable system with the one drive, and the second drive has had at least an hour to cool off, plug #2 back in like it was before, and see what happens. If you see no partitions or logical drives, shut down and put the drive aside. You can decide later if you want to try data recovery. If both logical drives work, first back up data on the one that wasn't working before. Then back up the other one. If you only see one (other than C:), back it up, then set the drive aside.
Once your backups are complete, and if you still don't have a D: drive, try running chkdsk. If it doesn't run, look in the disk manager, and see if it shows anything useful. If it says you have a blank disk, then you need to decide if the data was important enough to try to recover. Let me know what you find.
Stick a fork() in it!
