HP Pavilion Gaming Laptop - 16-a0032dx
Microsoft Windows 11

SSD is split and showing 27GB and  a 400GB Drive. It is a single 512 SSD. Laptop was getting blue screen randomly?, i tried doing system reset to solve issue, but it crashed during the middle of it. For a while, the 400GB did not show up. I tried using a partition tool to get it to show up, and it did, but now it is split in half, and anytime I try to save/install/delete anything on this half of the drive, it crashes my computer.  It was previously 1 drive.

That is very normal. You should have 2 partitions C: for Windows and 😧 (or E:) for Recovery. Probably you did not notice from day 1. Please do NOT save files on RECOVERY partition.

 

Please use the following to save files at the right place first
