Old Primary Active Hard Drive

I have an old Primary SATA HDD with Windows 7 64 Bit and some files etc Installed on it.

I have it plugged into a USB caddy.
Although it shows up in Disk Management, I don't see it in My Computer.
How can I access my files on it without making irreversible changes to it?

Any advice would be much appreciated.
