    This PC: missing flash drive, not showing 2nd drive as a bitlocked

    This has happened before, then went a way after a while and several restarts. Now it's back.

    My Computer (aka "This PC"), under "Devices and Drives", does not show my SD card that is inserted, though I can navigate to it by manually typing H:\. I also can find it my using File Explorer to look at the Desktop (but ONLY if I navigate by starting at This PC and then going up to the Desktop), where it appears with an icon like it's an external drive (it's built into my laptop).

    Meanwhile, certainly related to the same root cause, my D drive, which is encrypted as a Bitlocked drive, is missing the lock icon. Before this issue, upon a fresh computer start, I could see the lock closed, double-click it, and it would prompt for the password. Now, it shows no lock, and double-click simply results in a pop-up saying the drive cannot be accessed or something. I can, however, right-click on it, manage bitlocker, and get to the prompt that way to unlock it. Once unlocked, it does not show the unlocked lock icon either. Pic attached.

    What's going on? Can anyone help?
