HOw old is the drive? How long have you had it? Did you use it to transfer large files; or as a back up drive, and it was just connected all of the time?

Hi NimishaR,

Could you tell me if the drive is recognized in Disk Management and in Device Manager? When in Disk Management, check if the drive has a proper file format. Since you are using Windows 10, I would recommend you to open the motherboard manufacturer’s web page and install the latest chipset and SATA controllers.
If you have the option, please check the HDD as a secondary drive on another PC. Try to access and backup your files. If you manage to save all important data, download the drive manufacturer’s diagnostic tool and do complete drive check.

Hope this helps
