    Angry Cannot locate hard drive in Windows 10

    So I am having a huge problem that I cannot seem to find a fix for. My computer died recently, so I removed the hard drive from the tower and bought and external enclosure for it to attach to another computer. When I plug the drive into my new computer, it does not show up in This PC. It occasionally shows up under disk management and it does show up under device manager, under disk drives. How can I access my files? I would say the drive is dead yet earlier I was able to open the drive on another computer without a problem. At that time, I still couldn't access the files because of problems with the permissions, but I will cross that bridge when I get there. Does anyone have any solutions?

    Have you tried any 3rd party free software like Recuva, Easeus? Install these and then try to recover your files from External hard drive.
