Win 10 Pro will not longer allow me to access USB drives

After a recent update, Windows 10 Pro will not longer allow me to access USB drives that previously worked fine. I have spent the last week searching the web, trying option after option with no success.

When I click on the USB drive I get the error message: d:\ is not accessible Access is denied.

When I right click on the D: and click Properties, Security is not an option. The only choices I have are: General, Tools, Hardware, Sharing and Customize.

I am at my wits end, I have tried several regedit approaches, gpedit.msc etc all to no avail.
