    Hi,
    Have you created a RAID0 setup? if so could you please post the disk management snip and IRST status snip, also check in BIOS whether you have AHCI option available for SATA mode(like in my snip), please backup any important Pictures, Documents etc to an external drive, when you break RAID0 you will loose everything  in the drives.
    Install Minitool Partition Wizard free and check whether you can view the D drive.

    Hi,
    You need a spare HDD and a USB to SATA cable like the one in the link for the method I am going to describe.
    1.Download and install Macrium Reflect free program.
    2.Create a Rescue USB disk with Macrium reflect, connect the external HDD to the laptop with USB to SATA cable and backup the current disk image on to the external HDD.
    3.Remove the 1TB HDD from the laptop, leave the SSD in the laptop.
    4.Insert the Rescue USB disk created with Macrium reflect.
    5.Go to BIOS(press F2 button as soon as you press the power button) and move to Boot tab, make the USB rescue disk as your first boot device(highlight it and press F6 button to move up to first boot position).
    6.It will boot with Macrium reflect, connect the external HDD with USB to SATA cable.
    7.Restore the image you have backed up to 128GB SSD.
    8.Once the restoration finishes, remove the Rescue USB disk, disconnect the external HDD.
    9.Go to BIOS again and make the SSD as your first boot device, it may not boot at first, after couple of attempts it will present a blue screen, click Trouble shoot, Advanced options, then select Reset, when you do the reset you will be offered an option to keep your files, select that option.
    10.That's all, now you can reinstall the original 1TB HDD, format it and use as a separate drive.
    You should read these tutorials to familiarise yourself with Macrium reflect.

    you can always try a factory reset it would reinstall windows from factory (as you said it's brand new and you don't have nothing on it) you could give it a try https://us.answers.acer.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/35232/~/how-to-restore-windows-on-my-acer-computer-using-alt-%2B-f10-on-startup
