recover my disk after mobo failure help

Hello My Mobo on my old PC died and I replaced it with a new one and uprgraded my cpu ram and a new m.2 hd on top of that. After windows setup on upgraded rig most of my other SSDs connected and worked fine but my 6gb WDC WD6003FZBX-00K5WB0 drive would not connect saying i/o error in disk management. looking in WD Dashboard it says drive is locked. I dont ever remember using security on my HD but I am wondering how I can get to use my HD again. its not that old and only for the most part had games on t so If I have to wipe it that is ok. but id rather not. any help or suggestion where to ask others would be awesome thanks.
