    Perhaps a better way to deal the partitions on Disk 0 (as shown by Disk Management) is to delete all partitions other than your data partition ( D: ).

    It shouldn't have programs installed on it, unless you have specifically specified an install path as D:\.................. - in which case, as your Windows is on the other drive, all start menu entries, registry keys and most likely other folders which are part of that program will be on C:

    That would be unwise from a maintenance viewpoint, and would mean D: isn't exclusively a data partition.

    So, I still suggest removing Disk 0 ('D:') temporarily and checking the laptop boots and the programs you have doubts about as to whether they were installed (in part) on Disk 0 to see where you are, as the first step.

    Good morning everyone!

    Ran the chkdsk /b /v C: last night and all I got was that it was complete and did not mention any errors. On the subject of RAID drives, take a look at the boot up screen capture I managed to get. The resolution is awful but notice that it indicates that the drives in my laptop are Non-RAID Disks. Or I could be reading it wrong. You decide.

    I don't think you have anything like a RAID configuration... why Minitool PW showed that I've no idea.

    Anyway, have a go when ready at cleaning up the disk with D: on it.
