D:\ is not accessible.
The volume does not contain a recognized file system.
Please make sure that all required file system drivers are loaded and that the volume is not corrupted.
My Windows 10 PC has three drives. The C drive is used for the OS and the few applications I installed to the PC and Drive D(the problem drive) has my virtual machines, in which I do all my work as well as some games. Last night, I noticed that some of the applications were slow to respond(felt like freezing) while other applications residing on that drive continued to work. At the end of the night, I rebooted and went to bed. This morning, I was greeted with the following error when I noticed all the .icos on the desktop that belonged to apps on that drive were blank.
I've not done much for fear of messing something up further. I went to properties and tried "Error checking" but received:
The disk check could not be performed because the disk is not formatted. Would you like to format the disk?
If I could restore the drive to working condition, that would be ultra nifty but if I can't I would also greatly appreciate being able to get at least some of the files on that drive, like the vbox drives so I could recover my working OSes.
I've done a lot of searching and unfortunately, most of the results point toward software gateways(you know the ones, fake news sites talking about the pandemic of corrupted d drives where the tireless journalist has fallen upon a fix for all that ails you). I've not installed any of them since I can't find anythingt that can be vouched for.
Any suggestions would be welcome. Thanks for your time!
