So i have recently been having problems with windows 10. Whenever i try opening any windows tools such as "Task Manager", "Command Prompt", "Regedit", "Services" it never opens and instead it comes up with an error "The specified path does not exist". I provided the two screenshots of the error below.

I also can't open any installers that i download to my C drive unless it a .rar file and is inside winrar. Whenever i open the installer, the file explorer freezes and then again gives an error saying "The specified path does not exist". Screenshot provided below.

When i boot windows in safe mode, all the windows tools work and i can open "Task Manager", "Command Prompt", "Regedit", "Services", etc. with no problem. I assumed that this was a windows problem so I attempted to do a system restore but after going through all the phases of the restore, it reverted the changes and i was back where i started. I now question whether i should install windows on my second ssd and make that the bootable ssd. The problem with that is that i don't have a windows 10 product key because i bought this pc from someone else about a year ago so idk how that would be able to work.

So i recently did a clean restore to my second ssd. I initialized it and created a new simple volume as shown by video tutorials. The problem is that when i enter my ssd, it has nothing at all. It doesn't have the normal program files folders that it used to have. I was wondering on how to get those folders. Below i posted a screenshot of how my second ssd looks.

I have merged your two topics, since it seems to be dealing with the same computer, and in all likelihood the same problem.

 

Please explain what you are meaning by a "clean restore" to your second drive. Restore implies returning a saved condition to a drive. Re-initializing the drive and creating a new volume will result in an empty drive, its previous contents will no longer be there. Did you have the drive contents saved somewhere in order to restore them?

 

If you have cleared a drive of files that are referenced by Windows, you will naturally get the error that the path does not exist.
