My D drive is a partition and suddenly disappeared when I force closed the epic games launcher. I can't find it in my disk manager even after rescanning. I personally know little to nothing about this whole thing so I have no idea how to fix it either. anyone know how to fix this?

So disk 0 partition 2 is what used to be the D "drive."

Look to see if you can give that partition a letter -- right click on it and see if "change drive letter" is an option. If not you will either need to reformat it or attempt to recover it using a free partition repair tool, depending on whether you can easily replace the data that was on the D partition.

Every single option after I right click it is greyed out... and the capacity is only 100 MB for some reason

Ah, my bad -- 100MB -- that is your SRP and you shouldn't mess with it -- it was not your D partition.

Is there a second drive in your system? (any kind of drive)

What is the size of the C partition -- it may be that your D "drive" was actually not a partition on that drive.

C's only about 120 GB so D should be a partition. I'm using an Asus Laptop if that helps. And as far as I remember, my cousin (who set up the laptop) told me it was a partition

Your C drive is all of disk 0 (other than the small recovery and SRP partitions). There is not and never was a second partition.

You either have a second drive that died or D referred to an optical drive.
Oh hell did my D Drive die for good... I had so much data in that thing

You (or someone) need to physically open up the laptop and eyeball exactly what drives may or may not be in there.
Currently, your Disk Management window shows a single physical 128GB drive, probably an SSD.
