I guess you've installed the RHEL on your D: drive.

Linux mostly uses ext3/ext4 file systems,which windows can't understand.

Try some data recovery techniques which are available for free.

Google the same issue, you may find some useful solutions.

If you boot Red Hat, can yo see your windows folders/files? If you boot windows and cannot see Red Hat folders/files, that is expected behavior. If that is the case then you will need third party software to do that as windows can't read/write to Linux filesystems.

Let's check what you've got; run this as root in Linux
Code:
fdisk -l
that's a lowercase L by the way

Also
Code:
cat /etc/fstab

cat /etc/mtab
