External HD gone from explorer with access denied

My Western Digital external hard drive has just stopped showing up in Windows Explorer. I can see it under Disk Management. I also have irreplaceable data on the drive. I'm greeted by this message when first loading into Disk Management.

I'm not sure why my images aren't showing but right click and open in new tab works also im talking about Disk 4 on the last image.

I think your images were too high resolution and so cannot be displayed. Try uploading again but at a small resolution so that the image sizes are only 100KB or so each. Right clicking on them causes a sub menu to appear but it does not give me the option to "open in a new tab" either. Incidentally you mention "Disk 4" but there are only three broken images not 4.

Hope this works. Disk 4 is the problem drive.
