I will try to help. Did you have anything plugged into your computer that isn't normal or unplug and plug in again anything?
If it was my computer I would update and run my anti virus, Malwarebytes and Super Anti Spyware.
Reason: Any time there is a change on my computer and I didn't do the change I get worried.

Your images don't expand to a viewable size, so I have no idea what they are showing.

What does Disk Management show for this drive? Does it show as removable?
