Veracrypt volume missing after computer restart

I had created a Veracrypt volume / container on a 32 GB USB drive using exFAT file system in windows 8 OS. The veracrypt volume size was set to 25 GB.

Yesterday, i mounted the veracrypt volume and was accessing a file saved in this veracrypt volume. Unknowingly before dismounting the veracrypt volume, I restarted the computer. After rebooting, when I tried to access the USB drive it displayed the message 'E:\ is not accessible' (Location is not available) error.

Windows also displayed an error message 'There's a problem with this drive. Scan the drive now and fix it.' When I clicked on this message box, the contents of the USB drive were immediately displayed but the veracrypt volume, which I had labeled as MyVault was missing from the files list in the USB drive.

All the files in the veracrypt volume are available on the USB (as the USB shows used space as 25 GB) but I am unable to access these files, as the veracrypt volume MyVault is not listed in the list of files on the USB drive.

Kindly provide a solution to access the files stored on my veracrypt volume.
