I get this message when I attempt to open some photos stored on accessory hard drives.

My older laptop which has a previous version of Windows (which I think is 8), those same photos appear in the file as icons, and they open right up.

I usually set my "View" to display the photos as extra large thumbnails. On Windows 10, some of the photos in my file folders appear as thumbnails, and they open just fine. Other photos, a considerable number of them, appear only as icons, not thumbnail images, and these photos do not open, instead displaying the message "Looks like this file has been moved or renamed." When I view these same files from the same accessory hard drives on my older laptop (which is literally falling apart), all of them appear as thumbnails, and they open readily.

One thing I'd check is if the USB drive is plugged into a USB 3 port [blue center in the plug/socket] instead of a USB 2 [black center of the plug/socket] port. I have some USB Thumb drives that are particular in which type port they can use.
