Hi Sudhakar005,

If you drive’s letter is F, run the Command Prompt as an Administrator and type the following command:

Chdksk F:/ r

Wait for the process to end and then try to open the folder. I strongly recommend you to test the drive on another PC and with different USB cable. If you have important information stored on the hard drive, use a data recovery tool and try to save the most important files. I leave you a link below with some suggestions:

Hope this helps
