    Hello Musaiad, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    If these are data drives, then see if using "Take Ownership" on them may help.

    Take Ownership - Add to Context Menu in Windows 10

    If the drives were encrypted with BitLocker, and you are now locked out, then nothing will help unless you have the BitLocker password or recovery key for it.
