My computer has been recently attacked by a lethal virus which has deleted one of my Hard drives completely without me even knowing. Is there any way to retrieve these lost/deleted disappeared data..?

If the virus was written with the intention of destroying data, then the chances are that it's gone for good. It's worth searching for (and trying) undelete software, but do so in hope rather than expectation.
