Windows 7: Did I go from NTFS to Exfat on accident? Access denied everywhere now

Did I go from NTFS to Exfat on accident? Access denied everywhere now

My 2tb internal drive wasn't allowing me to copy/save files to it, it ended up being dirty.

After I unmounted it via Disk Management, i tried to chkdsk it and chkdsk said something like it wasn't accessible, so I tried to restart to fix it.

After restarting, chkdsk still had the same error, so I figured I'd mount the drive again. Maybe I did something wrong, because now where it says Exfat where it normally showed the drive size, and it doesn't let me access it, saying access denied.

I'm trying to unmount it, but it's giving me the same message, access denied.

Oh, I have about 1.5tb of stuff on there I'd rather not lose.
