I have an external HDD, 2T. Using Win. 10, I have had it for about a year and have lots of programs on it. I don't know what occurred, but when I try to open it I get this message M/:is not available. Access denied. In control panel it shows a healthy partition. Need some advice. T.I.A.

Does Windows 10's equivalent of Disk Management show the external HD and its partition[s] ok?  I use W7Pro, hence my use of the word equivalent.  Does this HD properly show up vis-a-vis either a usb or DVD boot?
