Drive Cannot be Initiated by Disk Management RRS feed

  • Question

  • Windows 10 file explorer cannot recognize my hard drive when I connected to the USB port but it is OK from the disk management. A message popped up once I open the disk management that the drive is required to initiate. An error message showed up with an incorrect function by the virtual disk manager when I initiate the drive. The drive is recognized with a tiny red arrow next to the drive. I used diskpart and found the following data from the drive as below. Could someone help me to to find out what is going on? Thanks.
