My Specs
  • Ryzen 5 1500x, 16GB RAM, Windows 10 latest,
  • 1x 128GB Adata SATA SSD (C:\ windows installation drive)
  • 1x 512GB Adata NVMe SSD (D:\ game drive which disappeared)
  • 1x 1GB HDD (E:\ and F:\ )
I was installing a game, went AFK, and when i came back my windows explorer was frozen, with game installation progress at 62.1%I was forced to Restart. When my PC restarted my NVMe SSD was no longer visible. When i check DiskMgmt, it seems to have become Disk1 Partition 2 (Healthy Recovery Partition).

This SSD doesnt show up in my BIOS. However when i check Device Manager it shows that my NVM Express Controller has issues

How do i recover my SSD? When i right click it, all i get is "Help" which leads me to a Microsoft site that doesn't help in anything.

Where (drive/partition) where you trying to install the game? What game?

Disk 1, C: drive is almost full.

Disk 0, I see a partition E: and two "Storehouse F:" partitions.

Drive letter typo perhaps?

Note: Your C: drive hosting the OS is too small. Minimal 240 GB for Windows 10. And being 87% or so full is going to create additional problems.
