    Hello. My laptop's local disk D is not accessible. What can I do? I have lots of folders in there that I need. I don t want to lose everything. It happened a while ago but I haven t had time for it and now I remember that I used a USB stick to put some music in it before the problem appeared. I just dragged out the USB and then the local disk D went off. When I try to click on it says it's not accessible. Thank you.

    Hi Anykzy, and welcome to TSG.

    What is Disk D on your laptop? On many computers, the letter D is assigned to an optical disc drive. Is it calling the USB stick disk D?

    Exactly what operating system are you using?

    Exactly what is that disk drive? Is it a partition on a larger single disk drive that also contains the C: system partition? Is it physically a second hard drive in your laptop? Is it a USB flash drive plugged into your laptop? Is it an optical drive?

    Whatever it is, Windows 10 cannot recognize the file structure of that D drive. If it was working OK at one time, then the contents of the drive may have become corrupted.

    If the D drive is a USB flash drive that your computer considers a local drive instead of as a removable drive, the contents could have become corrupted if you unplugged it from the computer while the computer was on. I am not familiar with the details of how Windows 10 writes and reads data on USB drives.
