Tried to boot from old hard drive. Now i can’t access it.

I recently built a new PC, and used a usb HDD dock to get files from the previous computer's hard drive. Everything showed up on explorer perfectly fine but i had problems with permissions for my user folder so i decided to boot from the old HDD on the new PC but that didn't work. Now when i plug the HDD back into the PC just to read the files, it freezes windows explorer. Also, the name of the drive used to be "OS" but now it shows up as "Local Disk". Any disk-related programs freeze when it is plugged in as well(Diskpart, disk drill, drive management, explorer).

A few questions. is this something i can fix on my own? Is the hard drive dead? Should is see professional.
