Cannot see external dive

I connected an external drive and carried out a backup using Paragon software
The drive showed as K today when reconnecting the external drive it does not show anywhere?
The Paragon software recognizes it but I would like to see it outside of this software.
Can someone assist please.

Try shutting down PC completely. Then switch on external drive (assuming it is USB with its own power supply), then re-start PC. You should now be able to see the drive in My Computer.

I have tried that twice but I now see that there is no volume label on the external drive when I investigate in Paragon.
