Download Speccy, run the program, and publish a report. Post the link in your next post.

No need to attach any files here.  Just follow the instructions above from JohnC_21 on how to publish a Speccy report, and then copy/paste the applicable URL into your next forum reply.

 

Best wishes.

Speccy shows a normal partition structure on the hard drive. Is this a laptop with only one hard drive? If the computer has only one drive then the only thing I can think of is your D: drive was your optical driver, correct?

I understand now. If you wiped your drive and reinstalled Windows 10 your D: partition is gone. 

 

I recommend you create your own recovery image to an external drive using programs like Macrium Free or Aomei Backupper. With the bootable media each program creates your can restore your image should the computer no longer boot because of corruption of the file system, malware, or a failed drive. You can also browse the image in order to copy any file from the image.

 

By creating images at regular intervals you can restore your computer in minutes vs hours.
