    Once upon a time I had a C: and D: drives on my laptops 500 GB HDD, then Windows 10 forced itself upon me.

    Now, I have:

    *:Recovery NTFS 400MB capacity 274MB used 125MB free GPT, WRE flag None status
    *:ESP FAT32 300MB 53MB 246MB GPT, EFI System
    *: Other 128MB 0MB 128MB GPT, MSR None
    C:Acer NTFS 464MB 89MB 375MB GPT Boot
    *: NTFS 468MB 384MB 83MB GPT, WRE None

    (Apologies for spacing...)

    Any clues as to what happened other than what I have searched for and found re: Win10, i.e. nightmares?

    I have Paragon backups which include the old D: drive as part of the whole system backup but I'm hesitant to start. Suggestions?

    I'm pretty sure one can't restore from C: to C: but I have the backups on an external 3TB drive...can I restore the old D: partition from X: to X: (being external) using the application on C: laptop?

    Any help would be most appreciated.

    Can you post the thing you forgot and worked, so others searching for the same issue can benefit from it?
