Windows 10: Folder on Media Drive said "Not accessible" and now has disappeared.

    Folder on Media Drive said "Not accessible" and now has disappeared.


    Very strange situation here. I have a 2GB WD Black Hard drive as a media drive in my PC. I have a 1GB primary drive with windows on it.
    I went to go view a video in my Movies Folder on the Media drive. I got an error saying folder not accessible. Then the folder disappeared. I had folders "not accessible" before but I never had one disappear on me. I thought it would be fixed upon reboot-no luck. Still not there. I have "view hidden items" selected" and that hasn't worked. Is there any way to fix this?

    First thing I would do is run chkdsk /f on that disk.
