    Is the problematic drive an internal or external HD/SSD or USB drive?

    Open administrative command prompt and type or copy and paste: (all at one time)

    diskpart
    lis dis
    lis vol
    sel dis 0
    det dis
    lis par
    sel par 1
    det par
    sel par 2
    det par
    sel par 3
    det par
    sel par 4
    det par
    sel par 5 
    det par
    sel dis 1
    det dis
    lis par
    sel par 1
    det par
    sel par 2
    det par
    sel par 3
    det par
    sel par 4
    det par
    sel par 5 
    det par
    

    Post an image of the commands with results into this thread or post a share link using one drive, drop box, or google drive.

    Hi @VIkky384

    It seems once you disable the bit locker the Admin account might not be recognized and giving out the error messages . Can you try logging to the Clean boot and see if you can write data on D drive. You can also try enabling the Admin account and see if that is helpful.
