OMEN by HP - 17-w220nr

I have recently purchased a used HP Omen 17 and when I run drive management it shows the 128gb OS drive and a second drive that is partitioned. the first drive is Drive #1 - SanDisk SD8SN8U-128G-1006 (119 GB)

the second is Drive #2 - HGST HTS721010A9E630 (931 GB). Here is where it gets weird, the second drive has 2 partitions 

partition 1  D has Total Size 716670 MB, Used Space 696 MB, Free Space 715974 MB
partition 2  E has Total Size 952190 MB, Used Space 57771 MB,  Free Space 894419 MB
Now that comes to 1,668,861MB and I believe that is more than 1TB. I have opened the case to add better thermal paste and it has 1 platter and 1 PCIE drive. Unless disk management is reading wrong,

Can you see it using Disk Management graphically ?

storage spaces was the issue. I backed up all files and removed the partitions from it. Now it reads correctly.

I have a problem with HP recovery though. Launching HP recovery manager the create recovery media does not work. I had to use windows  recovery media creator. This is no big deal accept that it has told me that the  hp recovery media has been removed. In disk management it shows the recovery partition as 3.74gb and the EFI partition is 260mb. I've read that the recovery partition has to have a drive letter to be accessed. I bought this HP Omen used and I don't know the history of it.

I am computer literate but I am cautious about trying to fix things that aren't broken. In the event my pc crashes, I don't want to spend hours trying to fix it.
