I told you that Is a very strange problem. I will end while transferring files to another HDD format and get it done.
But was very curious about what it could be. Anyway, thank you very much for trying to help. All the best 👍.

Don't know if this will help, but backup all your data to an external disk and format the disk where Windows in installed. The problem will be solved. And before you start to shoot I know reinstalling all the programs is a tedious task, but as far I can see is the definitive solution. Take it or leave it. It's your choice.

I didn't try that, but i removed it from the motherboard and changed the ports or drive letter. Still same
After you pointed me to Disk Management noticed that their drive letter is missing! This can be a problem...
I can change drive letter via other Partition tools, but on Disk Management everything is grayed out

Thanks, friend, that's my final option. I am trying to avoid formatting... Its 4TB and need to buy 4TB to do this...

In Disk Genius scanning result, some files or folders are tagged with a red or green deletion icon. The green one means the folder contains deleted data, and the red means it is the deleted file/folder.

What is in the “Orphaned Files“ folder showing in Disk Genius?
At a guess I’d say you ran some type of software on your drive and totally screwed it.

To whatever effect, I’d unmount the drive in Disk Management… then reboot a couple of times with the drive disconnected from the PC. Then remount the drive. If the drive doesn’t show, I’d then try changing the drive letter (as I said earlier in the thread) to something other than D: or K:
This all may seem pointless but you haven’t got anything to lose. I have rediscovered drives before, screwing around like this.

    …still on a horse.
I didn't try that, but i removed it from the motherboard and changed the ports or drive letter. Still same
After you pointed me to Disk Management noticed that their drive letter is missing! This can be a problem...
I can change drive letter via other Partition tools, but on Disk Management everything is grayed out
Could the drive itself be the problem?

That would be my guess. Or at the least needs to be wiped reformatted/partitioned.

If the drive is the problem I hope they can recover any data that they don't want to lose.

By the looks of the results of his screenshot of Disk Genius, there are only a couple of folders left. There is a folder called “MyAppsBackUP” that has been deleted by the looks, not much else left. This is why I think they have run something on the drive and screwed it. But I guess.
