i need to access the recovery partition for some maintenance but i cannot gain access, when i try to select the partition( which ive assigned the to the letter D)

the command prompt tells me the device is not ready and i think thats because it doesn't have a file system type (Ntfs) its just blank. please help me solve this issue 

or point to to a form where i can get help

Try do a repair install instead. Download Windows 10 installer from Microsoft website.

What sort of maintenance requires you to access the recovery partition? Best to leave it.

If you're interested in a product please download and read the manual first.

Don't forget to tag or quote in your reply if you want me to know you've answered or have another question.

You can always download a Windows 10 ISO using the Media Creation Tool on Microsoft's website, then wipe the computer using that.

Backup the drive first then, especially if you don't currently have a backup, then pave and nuke it. Unfortunately, I gave up on fixing recovery partitions eons ago because I value my time & sanity.

Good advice, thank you , If I do what do you use to backup and restore programs when nuking windows and reinstalling. I have paragon backup and recover with the drives backed up just worried not everything will be restored

Does "System" > "Update & Security" > "Reset this PC" not work?

FYI for a full backup go to "System" > "Update & Security" > "Backup" >"Go to Backup and Restore" > "Create System Image"

thank you for the information! when the image is used to restore the pc wouldn't that make it revert back to 1803? sorry if its a dumb question. also i have a second 4tb drive thats full of files which i have a backup of thats a couple weeks old would the system image need to include that? or can i use the backup i currently have?
