Xbox one X un-allocating external hard drive?

My xbox didn't have an issue before with reading the hard drive until I started it up and all my games were missing. I tried using different ports and even different external casings, to no avail. As a last ditch effort, I checked it on the computer and it showed up as unallocated. Why and how could this happen?

The xbox is a 500GB and is about 4 years old. The hard drive is fairly new. I only had it plugged into the xbox for about a week.
