The owner of the company I work for has given me a Samsung M3 1TB portable drive that his daughter has saved a file on. 

 

It shows up on my windows 10 pc but cannot access it. 

 

I have installed Paragon APFS but the drive does not show up in the program?

 

Does anyone else have any other solutions to access this drive?

Well, is it formatted as APFS in the first place?

I assume it is as it's been used on a MacBook to save an iMovie file to it. 

 

How do I tell?

APFS is recent, most external drives used with macs will still be using HFS+. Not sure you can tel it easily on a PC, but properties on a mac will show the type.

I downloaded HFSExplorer and even that does not detect the drive.
