Initialize Disk Failed Logical Disk Manager

One of the hard disks suddenly failed to initialized. The first problem I found on this disk was unable to open one of the zip files then the machine crashed. After I restarted the machine the HDD drive was missing from the Computer. My computer has 6 hard drives including the missing one. One is Corsair SSD for the OS and the rest are Samsung, Hitachi and WD all of them are 1TB. When I checked on the Device Manager the Drive is there and the device status is properly working. I checked on the Disk Management and I got a message to Initialize the Disk then I followed the instruction. Again I got an error message " Virtual Disk Manager - The system cannot find the file specified." On the Disk Management windows the status of the Disk is "Unknown 931.51GB Not Initialized- Unallocated". I tried to initialize but the same error I got.
I did not name this drive but it named automatically RV 01 and the Location is 0.
I use Acronis Disk Director to fix the problem but it cannot change the status to online.
What I did last week was I installed some programs to the Drive X instead of Drive C.
Some of the advice I got in the google are to use the hdd to another computer, now I am not yet check it. Please give me some advice regarding this matter.
My computer OS is Windows 7 64bits all the drivers and software are updated.
