Are you saying that you are unable to access Local Disk F?
What is the size and model of your ext. HDD?

Try plugging it into other ports.

Do you need the data from this drive or have backups? Notice how the file format is empty for F.

Tried restarting while external is still connected? Connect it to a USB 2 port and restart PC.
