Recovering Files From an HP Pocket Media Drive After a Windows Update Attack

HP Recommended
HP Pocket Media Drive 640GB
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

I know all the files are intact because I do a Norton Scan on over 6 million files discovering and fixing 19 virus "grains"...But still after successfully saving 2 nights ago, my "Book file", to the PD6400z Model integrated pocket media 640GB drive that fits in a removable "slot" in the front of my faithful HP Pavilion Slimline tower PC, and then properly powering down my PC - noting that Windows Updates were to be Installed while powering down - I should have "aborted then and there" with my experiences with HP hardware, Windows, and Updates (THEY MAKE FOR A VOLATILE MIX for the VIRAL WORLD)...BUT I did not, powering down, watching the % increments of Update installation, power down, beddy-bye, wakey-wakey, power up, go to select the G: drive where I save EVERYTHING!, and get a dialog box, ["Location is not available." X  "G:\ is not accessible."  "Access is denied." OK ] . What do I do now?
