SATA drives missing after Windows 10 update

I have lost a secondary SATA HDD and SATA DVD drive after a Fast Ring Windows 10 Build update. Both the missing drives are on the same SATA channel.

They DO show up in BIOS, but they do NOT show in either Windows Explorer or Windows Disk Management.

Was it the Windows 10 update that did this, or did they coincidently die?

What can I do to fix this? All of my personal data and backups are on the missing HDD. I have tried running 3rd party diagnostic tools, but they do not find the missing drives; neither SATA HDD or SATA DVD.

Have you tried different ports on the motherboard?
