Nope.

This is VL.


Just a longshot, but can I assume you're activated normally and don't have a 3rd party bootloader? Some 3rd party bootloaders tend to overwrite partition tables.

Yup :) This is normal standard activation.

Who says it get removed? Looks to me like the disk just didn't get read correctly - since your file type is gone. If just label was removed you would still see that its a NTFS file system still.

Go to a command line and use disk part to see if you can view it that way. Elevated prompt!

Shows offline for whatever reason - so yeah its not going to show you label or type. So there is NOTHING in your event log on why the volume was set offline?? I find that almost impossible to believe.

what do you get if you just set it back online

sel vol 2
online volume

generally what I do is let it load up-- then sort by type-- look for anything red -

When you sort by type depending on the sort they will either be at the top or bottom of the list.

I would start there... usually those will tell you if there are serious issues.

Found something! :) Finally. I just don't know how the **** this arrived like this. And how the **** do I remove it?

Encrypted volume check: Volume information on \\?\Volume{b692cea4-1ccd-11e2-80c8-806e6f6e6963} cannot be read.

Source: BitLocker-Driver
User: SYSTEM

The thing is I have never used Bitshit in my life. How the **** do I nuke this piece of ****?

And now even stranger: I used to be able to assign it a letter (therefore recovering the label), deassign it the letter and then hibernate. Now I do the same process but when I hibernate it, the display goes black but the PC keeps running and it never hibernates.

I don't think that error is related to drive being encrypted or using bitlocker, just think that is a generic type error that that volume can not be read in general. While your bitlocker driver checked to see if it was encrypted.

Seems you have issues with that disk if you ask me... You ran checkdisk against that specific partition?

Does that guid for that volume match up with your system reserved partition? A quick way to list all volumes by guid is mountvol

example

C:\>mountvol
Creates, deletes, or lists a volume mount point.

MOUNTVOL [drive:]path VolumeName
MOUNTVOL [drive:]path /D
MOUNTVOL [drive:]path /L
MOUNTVOL [drive:]path /P
MOUNTVOL /R
MOUNTVOL /N
MOUNTVOL /E

	path		Specifies the existing NTFS directory where the mount
				point will reside.
	VolumeName  Specifies the volume name that is the target of the mount
				point.
	/D		  Removes the volume mount point from the specified directory.
	/L		  Lists the mounted volume name for the specified directory.
	/P		  Removes the volume mount point from the specified directory,
				dismounts the volume, and makes the volume not mountable.
				You can make the volume mountable again by creating a volume
				mount point.
	/R		  Removes volume mount point directories and registry settings
				for volumes that are no longer in the system.
	/N		  Disables automatic mounting of new volumes.
	/E		  Re-enables automatic mounting of new volumes.

Possible values for VolumeName along with current mount points are:

	\\?\Volume{2964090a-db60-11e0-ba2f-806e6f6e6963}\
		*** NO MOUNT POINTS ***

	\\?\Volume{594c943c-dbb1-11e0-a78d-180373b10dd3}\
		D:\

	\\?\Volume{2964090b-db60-11e0-ba2f-806e6f6e6963}\
		C:\

	\\?\Volume{2964091f-db60-11e0-ba2f-806e6f6e6963}\
		*** NO MOUNT POINTS ***

	\\?\Volume{29640920-db60-11e0-ba2f-806e6f6e6963}\
		*** NO MOUNT POINTS ***

	\\?\Volume{29640921-db60-11e0-ba2f-806e6f6e6963}\
		*** NO MOUNT POINTS ***

	\\?\Volume{29640922-db60-11e0-ba2f-806e6f6e6963}\
		*** NO MOUNT POINTS ***

	\\?\Volume{6cc911ca-db53-11e0-80fa-806e6f6e6963}\
		E:\

	\\?\Volume{6cc91246-db53-11e0-80fa-180373b10dd3}\
		I:\

Now that first one is my reserved volume - and I can real simple verify that with just opening it

guid.png

If while system reserved partition is listed, not a drive letter can you open it with that volume guid listed? If not it might be some other mount point that is no longer even connected to your drive and could be a red herring in your quest for the cause of the problem.

I would run a chkdsk against that system reserved partition. This thread has been going on for a while - you did run a FULL drive test with the tools from your drive maker??

I don't believe you can run a check disk with say
C:\>chkdsk \\?\Volume{2964090a-db60-11e0-ba2f-806e6f6e6963}\
The specified volume name does not have a mount point or drive letter.

So give it a drive letter and then run chkdsk against that drive letter.
