  3. Run as administrator:
    mountvol /d x:

commands for me that works in windows 11 slightly different
mountvol x: /s
mountvol x: /d
and I also managed to see drive x only through Explorer++ with admin
and there I didn't find all the files but cleaned them just by clicking local disk x scan by eset through Explorer++ and then he cleaned them.
