After receiving a BSOD, and I try to restart my machine is doesn't work. I get a 0x80070057 error. I can't fix it, it seems. This got me wondering if my SSD had failed.
I am on a Thinkpad T450s running Windows 10. I was running the OS on a m.2 SSD (256 GB) and had a HDD (500 GB) for files. I originally transferred the OS from the HDD to SSD a while back (Windows 8). The HDD still has partitions for the OS.
When I was trying to get my machine to boot, I ended up using the command prompt and DISKPART, and it looks like the 256 GB SSD is showing up as 115 GB disk with a 32 GB 'primary partition' but has no volumes. What does that mean? Should it have volumes? The HDD have volumes and partitions.
Does this mean it's failed? Disk 3 (if that is the SSD) is online. And I can see it in the boot sequence or bios menus.
Is the SSD irreparable? Can I reset it? How do I know if it's fixable, that it's useable again even if files are lost. If I try to install Windows again, it doesn't recognize the drive from the recovery Windows installer, for example.
