Instaled Windows 8 UEFI on my 1TB 840 EVO SSD, have another 1TB SSD, but my 600GB Hard drive has been tagged as "Recovery partition"

I can't acces my 600GB hard drive full of really important data, I installed Windows 8 UEFI on my main SSD, having a second SSD to just have 2 TB of SSD Space, distributing all my data between the two SSD.

The problem is that after Installing Windows 8 in UEFI mode (GPT partitions on both SSD ofc) I can't access my 600GB Hard drive with it's precious data, the hard drive has been tagged as a "Recovery Partition" as I check on the Disk Manager.

Disk 0 is my main SSD, Disk 1 is my secondary 1TB SSD, Disk 2 is my Hard drive, as you can see it's tagged as "Recovery Drive" set by OEM, I don't know how it got tagged like that, it was after installing Windows 8 UEFI in a PC i Build my self.

I want to recover that drive but I'm afraid to do anything if not 100% sure it'll fix it, because I really can't afford to lose that Data.

Any ideas?

EDIT: Just stating the obvious, It doesn't show on "Computer" it only show the Disk C and Disk D, both my SSD, I also tried showing all hidden files from folder settings, it didn't worked.

Also tried writing in the window direction bar the whole all leters from A to Z to see if I could get into the Hard drive (Like F:\ and such)

Thank you all for the awesome Help! I fixed my problem by using DiskInternals Partition Recovery, which basically works to recover data from lost partition, although this partition wasn't really corrupted or lost, more like some of those bugs that happens on Windows from time to time that somehow transform your storage partition into a "Recovery" inaccessible out of reach partition.

Since no data was corrupted and the drive partition was working good everything was resolved, using that little software I could copy all the 600GB of data on the hard drive to one of my SSD, my personal/Work info, plus all my games and photos are safe now.
