    I suspected disk errors on my local drive D, which is a 500G partition of a 750G drive - not a system drive, just data. I decided to run disk check, but when it started it told me that the drive must be unmounted. I closed all apps and told it to force unmount.
    Since the disk check took a long time and slowed me down significantly, I've decided to cancel it and run it at night.
    After cancelling the disk checking, I cannot access my D drive any more. I can see it in my computer and in computer management, but apparently it is still "unmounted" and I couldn't find a way to remount it. Please advise! Thanks.

    Although I did not expect it a simple reboot solved the problem :)
    My system rebooted automatically after a Windows update and that took care of the problem.
