I recently bought a Kingston KC2500 500gb NVMe SSD. It was working fine for the first 2 days. But today when I turned on my PC in the morning, the partitions are gone and all the shortcuts for the programs in the SSD are a white piece of paper.
In device manager - Disk Drives, there is only my SATA SSD for Windows OS. (NVMe SSD is not there)
In Disk Management, the NVMe is completely gone like it's not in the computer.
In the BIOS, I can find it in System Info. and the Boot Devices. So, I think the computer does recognize the NVMe SSD.

I tried some things like uninstalling Storage Controllers in Device Manag. and IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers.
I took the NVMe out of the PC and put it back in.

does it show in storage spaces?

removing ide ATA won't help with an nvme. it doesn't use them.

try booting from ubuntu live usb and see if it can see nvme. could be it isn't working now - https://itsfoss.com/create-live-usb-of-ubuntu-in-windows/
I have ubundu on my pc, how do i check if i xan see my nvme asd?

Ok, i figured it out. I can see the nvme ssd in the Disk Usage analyser.
What now?
