    Hey, I have this weird thing about my Drive C: as you can see from the image below. This has been going on for a while now, probably more than a month. Back in July my HDD kinda got corrupted long story short, a game called Genshin Impact made the system to blue screen and the HDD refuses to show up in file explorer, but later in the morning it showed up but made somewhat like a clicking noise when I opened Genshin Impact again so I changed my HDD to an SSD, so I have a dual SSD setup and right after I changed my HDD to SSD, this Drive C: error thing didn't appeared at all when I checked it

    :)

    repairing drive c

    The part of process that you are in when updating Windows is the check disk (CHKDSK), the system is checking your drive for errors.

    Are you still having the issue and stuck at Scanning and repairing drive process?

    As a workaround, you can follow these steps to bypass the CHKDSK process:

    • Hold down the power button for 4 seconds.
    • The PC will reboot.
    • You will get stuck again on the process, repeat step 1.
    • You will get a message "press any key to bypass the chkdsk."
    • Press any key and it will continue on the update process.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.

    No C: but D: drive has all the data

    Hi Austin,

    To help you with your concern regarding the data on the drive C:, you're seeing the drive "C:" as the drive "D:" because you're booting your computer outside Windows. When booting your computer outside Windows, the system is reading the recovery partition
    as drive C: and the data in the drive C: \ are listed on the drive D: \. Try to boot your computer and try to check again the data in the drive C: \ and see if the data are listed.

    Regards.
