Default Quick Quest on HD

hi folks

was changing a secondary drive from NTFS to FAT32 this morning and had my external plugged in and i know i didnt do anything to it, expect unplug it when i was doing the NTFS to FAT process.

But now my external will not work, when i connect it, it will not show in my computer, when i went to Computer Manager, Storage it ask me to initalize it, when i did that it now says 298 unallocated partition.

How do i get my drive to work properpy without loosing my data, i had over 200gigs worth of stuff

please help
