    Challenging SSD Partition problem... kinda stumped. No volume showing


    Upgraded to an NVMe drive a while back, but realized I left some data on the previous SATA disk,

    When I connect the SATA disk now, it has no drive letter, which is puzzling. Disk Management sees the disk, and it is online, and shows as Basic, and "healthy (active, primary partition)", but I cannot assign a drive letter to it.

    So I go into Diskpart, and I can see the disk, I can query it and see its partitions. The Primary partition is what I want to access, and I can see it in Diskpart, but there are no volumes. I've used Diskpart successfully to assign drive letters before, but only to volumes, not partitions.

    I can successfully select the primary partition and make it active. But I still cannot access it.

    So I'm kinda stumped.

    Can I assign a drive letter to a partition?

    :)

  2. undo partition shrink

    Hi,

    If you accidentally shrink the volume of your SSD partition, there is an option to extend the volume as well. To extend the volume of your SSD partition, follow the steps below:

    • Press Windows key + X on your keyboard and select Disk Management.
    • Right-click the partition that you want to expand and click Extend Volume.
    • Select the amount of space that you want to extend.

    Keep us in the loop with the result.

    After hard reset, OS disk showing no volumes/partitions


    Hi everyone,

    I've searched high and low on Google for the specific issue that I'm having, but I can't seem to figure this out.

    About a year ago, I built my own computer. I have my OS (Windows 10) installed on a Plextor M6 256 SSD. Today, for about the fourth time in a year, my computer became unresponsive during normal use. After a forced hard reset, I was taken to a black screen with the 0xc00000e error, telling me that a required device was inaccessible. After a quick Google search, I found many answers saying that this problem was because of a corrupted boot record.

    I followed the steps recommended by Microsoft. First, I attempted automated startup recovery. This didn't work. Then I attempted to use bootrec to fix the problem. This resulted in the tool telling me that no Windows installations were detected.

    I decided then to open diskpart. The disk itself was detected, but whenever I listed volumes, nothing showed up for that disk. No partitions or volumes were listed.

    I've since recovered the drive by flashing a Clonezilla image that I had as a backup, so everything is up and running now. However, I am curious as to why this problem keeps happening. I've downloaded the diagnostic tools from Plextor for my disk, and it says that everything is fine. I've also run a Windows memory diagnostic, which has returned no errors.

    My assumption is that the hard reset is causing some kind of partition table corruption. But, that still leaves the issue of why the computer is freezing up to begin with unsolved. Any suggestions/possible causes to investigate would be much appreciated!
