Intel Rapid Storage Technology removed my D drive and turned it into this useless 'recovery volume'
Now my internal HDD and everything I had in it is completely gone, I can't see it from the file explorer nor the Disk Management application. It's just not there and I've lost access to it entirely.
After browsing on this issue it seems quite a few topics have been made about this problem in the past. I downloaded GParted and Disk Imager but I haven't dared to do anything yet out of sheer bewilderment. I don't know if there's an initial thread or where the initial solution to this problem starts, or how the solutions on the other threads apply to me (I don't understand the technical terms about 'RAID1' and 'AHCI').
I desperately need help starting from the beginning to explain how this problem can be solved. At this point I'm not even concerned about my files in there, I just want my drive back.
Thanks for reading this post and taking time to help a layman like me.
