You probably just need to assign a drive letter in disk management. Link on how to open it: Disk Management Windows 7 - How To Access Disk Management in Windows 7

Do not add or delete partitions or you will lose your data.

Once you can see the drive, run every antivirus and anti malware you have on it, including MS Malicious Removal Tool. Oh, and make sure you are able to see hidden files/folders, they are probably still there but the trojan hides them.
Yes but the first thing you "Have to do" is turn off system restore because the virus or what ever can hide itself inside there.
Also disconnect from the internet and try to boot into safe mode. there are disks that are free in which you can boot into the disk and then choose what you want to do like scan for virus's it takes quite a while to do this. I don't do it like that though what I do is grab a pen drive use a different cp and download some portable virus scanner and update it, then I boot the infected pc into safe mode and scan. there is also the combowfix which usually works
