Screwed up second physical hard drive - why?

Hello all. I did a new installation of win 11 on an ssd drive. I also have a second physical hard drive that is my DATA drive. It has been working flawlessly until a few days ago when it did an update and when it was done and rebooted it saw my separate drive letter but could not access it. I did a 'chkdsk' and after a couple of hours it was working with the system. However, after this, a number of the folders now had padlocks where none were previously there. I finally got those taken care. Bottom line, I don't want to keep 'losing' my data drive every time Win 11 does an update. ANY ideas on how to prevent this from happening in the future? THANKS for any responses offered.
