backed up my files on a 250g HDD

reinstalled win7 on 500g HDD

During install, I ignored the 250 and partitioned the 500g HDD like I have done thousands of times before.
Then choise one of the partitions on the 500G HDD to install wnin7.

Install complete and win 7 is on the proper partition on the 500g HDD. I see the other 500g HDD partitions listed as D and E in the file manager.

However, I dont see the 250g HDD

looking in administrative tools~computer management I see the 250g HDD as unallocated.

Any ideas how i can fix this and get back my important needed files? (these were my backups)
