External hard drive recognized but unable to use

I have an external hard drive hooked up to my remix android mini pc. Kodi has recognized this (and still does)but recently I am unable to download any media to it (from Kodi).

The problem, I think, is from when I recently deleted the File Manager folder shortcut from the remix mini pc's desktop. I recovered it before any damage was done (to the pc) by simply going into the "trash" folder and moving the file manager shortcut back to the remix pc's desktop.

Anyway, now I am not able to store any more media from Kodi onto this external drive.

Is there any way I can fix this from within Kodi? I have set up in the System/Files Management to use the external storage.

Thanks for any assistance with this.
