Windows 7: partition disappeared windows 10

partition disappeared windows 10


I have 2 hard drives in my PC, one normal and 1 SSD. The SSD is 500 GB and has 2 partitions: partition C where I have Windows installed, and partition G where I have games installed. Partition C has no problems but partition G has completely disappeared. When I go into disk management it shows me Disk 1 (which is the SSD) as 223.45 Gb total when it should be 500GB. It shows Partition C and the 3 recovery partitions (or whatever they are that windows creates) but the 200+ GB of partition G is nowhere to be found. It does not appear as unallocated space or a drive without a is just gone. This happened to me a few months ago and I found the fix somewhere after google-ing it but now I just can not remember how I fixed it and I can not find the fix anywhere. Please help me. (As you can see in the image there is no unallocated space for disk 1 and it shows as 223GB total in stead of the actual 500GB)

Thank you.
