cant backup my data anymore?

ive been backing up my music and videos since i reformatted my computer. just recently, the windows activity center popped up and said that my backup isnt working anymore because it cant find my "Local Disk (D)" hard drive. when i go to set up my backup settings the thing can only find "DVD Drive E" and not my hard drive D as a backup location.

any help to fix this issue?

hello and welcome

try to run cmd and change your drive to D:\
then press dir /a
see your file backup in there or not.
