Recently, I found out that I can't access to one of the network drive directly.  It is very hard for me to explain to you in words but have captured 2 screenshots for your attention.
Can you advise me what I can do about this?  FYI, I have another PC having the same problem.

My first thought is virus.  Is this only affecting you, and if so, is it only on this machine?  Try logging onto another machine and verify if you can reproduce the problem.  If not, then you know that it's an issue with the PC, and start scanning for virus and malware.

I agree with mlongoh...Looking at the screenshot, I'm thinking virus as well.

However, as it is happening on two machines you might want to look into permissions and rights.

Scan with Malwarebytes Anti malware program.

How many machines are able to access the shares properly?

Noticed an "Autorun" file in the root of your H: drive.  May want to see what that file is set to run.  Since double clicking on a drive will usually start Autorun first, that may be the cause of your error.

albelo...good catch.  That one got by me.  I can't think of a reason you'd want an autorun on a HD.
