You could try some kind of data recovery software but I don't know how effective it would be.  If the problem is due to the drive failing then I'd be cautious about doing anything with it until you have your critical data backed up.

OK , searching for data recovery software right now . and the disk management says all disk are healthy

The more you "test" the drive the more chances you have of causing a failure and losing the data for good. In my own testing at work I found that most of the free versions were very lacking and were not very extensive about restoring data. You're right most of the good software is not free. I've used $5,000 software that works well, but most people obviously cannot afford that. I  was able to find the following software which is about $80 but was also very good at recovering data.

I still not really sure why the partition G: got damaged /corrupted .anyway the GetDataBack Pro is a great software to use :) it is very fast software to scan the damaged or corrupted hard drive :) it only takes a few minutes to show all folder of the windows OS folder and file and my files too in the disk (G:) ! so I recommend to all users to not using any data recovery software because some of them are very slows to scan , their software will hung every few seconds .some will came bundled as with a lot of partitions software and most of features are not available so it is useless (it asking to scan for recover and etc : but they will ask you to pay for it with a high price) . so only use the good software for that purposes .

a trial version of the GetDataBack Pro software it supposed to allow to the users to recovering the data at the least for during trial use of the this software  but it is not allows that to the users even though by using the trial !

OK I’ve to posted some of the screenshots , it may be of any kind of helps to understand what happened to the Drive/Partition (G:) are below :

and when I run a check disk I got this error

C:\Windows\system32>chkdsk G: /f
The type of the file system is RAW.
CHKDSK is not available for RAW drives.

At this point it really doesn't matter how it happened. The concern is, can it be undone. If it cannot be undone then the data will be essentially lost except for fragments that may be able to be recovered.

I'm not sure if this free version will work or not but you need something that can recover partitions not just file. The manager is for doing things with partitions not doing recovery

Not free but hey... if you want your data then you may have to bite the bullet and pay for one of these

thanks for you for those links . I will give it a try right now and report back . I’m currently reading this  SOLVED: "You Need to Format the Disk Before You Can Use It" after improper USB unplugging. its free utility . and I will report back when I done .

To be houest,i find it hard to believe in free tools,because it never takes responsibility for failure.

Unfortunately many paid ones don't either, especially in the software world.  That's why you so often see the text within the EULA along the lines of something like this in most of them, including the most expensive paid products:

This software is provided "as is", without warranty of any kind, express or implied.  In no event shall insert name of company here be held liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special or consequential damages arising out of the us of or inability to use this software.

The software is supplied "AS IS".  Insert company name disclaim all warranties, expressed or implied, including, without limitation, the warranties of merchantability and of fitness for any purpose.  Insert company name assumes no liability for direct, indirect, incidental, special, exemplary, or consequential damages, which may result from the use of the software, even if advised of the possibility of such damage.

I'm sure if you read the EULAs included with most of the software you have installed you'll find similarly worded paragraphs of text waiving all liability pretty much no matter what happens, with the only exceptions being if perhaps the company offers some kind of guarantee, but those are rare and even then generally contain many of the same legal limitations for liability and just how far they will go/be required to go to try and make the situation right (like refunds, some kind of financial insurance/guarantee up to some set dollar amount (these are extremely rare, especially these days), attempts at data recovery etc.).
