Can't open folder - Location is not available

SC 101 Reputation points

I performed copy of all folders and files from hard disk A to hard disk B,
I had one shared folder on HDD A, this folder was also copied.
I removed HDD A from computer (disk is broken) and let there only HDD B.
Now, when I want to open this folder, I've got error " Location is not available" (see picture 1).
When I wanted to display Security settings of this folder in File Explorer, I've got message "The requested security information is either unavailable or can't be displayed" (picture 2)

Can you help me, please?
How can I open this folder, please?

Thank you in advance for your help.

    Do you mean you have copied that shared folder on HDD A to HDD B, and can't open it after copied?

    Does the issue occur on other files that also copied from HDD A to HDD B?

    Does the previous HDD A have a Windows system such as Windows 10 and others?

    I noticed the capture shows as D:\Document is unavailable to access, please try to move it to other location in a new created folder.

    If the issue occur on a specific folder and your previous system version is also Windows version, I am afraid the file would be corrupted can't available to access if it is unavailable to access in a new created folder.

    If you have backup it with One Drive or other sync tool, you could restore your file from there. But if not, it would be unavailable to get it.
