External/Second HD not working

Hello

I have 2 hard drives on my computer, one of them for the windows and the other to save documents.

At the moment the secondary hard drive, of documents, seems DE-activated, although I can see it trough some applications, but i can't acess them, i get messages back that the hard drive is not formatted.

I did attached 3 prints, on a try to clarify a little bit more the situation.
If anyone can help me on this matter i would appreciate.
Thank you and regards

As you can see the hard drives, it implies that your hard are not suffering from any physical damage and is of hope to be seen by other devices. Thus, you may try to get the hard drive out and check it with a new computer or hard drive reader.
