btw I tried restarting the disk managment program to no avail.

Looks like you've got a scrollbar in Disk Management. Tried using that? 

 

 

Alternatively, in Diskpart:

select disk #

create partition primary size=[however many megabytes]

format quick fs=ntfs label=[name]

assign letter=[drive letter]

activate

I wanted to move my windows install from a HDD to an SSD drive and I found a tutorial which seemed legitimate to me where he used the free software partition wizard to migrate data from one drive to another, upon selecting my drives and applying my settings my computer restarted as intended and showed the program preparing the migration but it stalled at 0% and froze. after a while of waiting it became clear that progress was unlikely so I decided to bite the bullet and restart my PC by holding down the power button. upon doing so it said "you do not have permission to access this folder" and told me to change permissions in the security tab, there was no security tab and I couldn't find any solutions online so I decided to clean my disk using diskpart. upon cleaning the disk I put the command create partition primary, then format fs=ntfs quick. upon doing so it says the perameter is incorrect and to check the system event log, upon checking there is an error which states: The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID 
{2593F8B9-4EAF-457C-B68A-50F6B8EA6B54}. I no longer see the drive in file explorer what should I do?

Have you checked Disk Management? I'm guessing you probably have though

Wait, you formatted the drive to repair the filesystem? Formatting erases all files present on the drive; there's very little you can do now, unfortunately (Unless you want to shell out hundreds for a service like DriveSavers).

The error you are seeing in the event log has nothing to do with the drive issue, it's nothing to worry about.

I see the drive present in Disk Management but I am unable to see it in file explorer, is there anything I can do with Disk manager to access the drive?

there were no files of importance to me before attempting to migrate my OS, do you mean that the drive itself is ruined?

You can assign it a drive letter in Disk Management if it doesn't have one and see if that helps.

CMD as administrator, type:

Diskpart

List Disk

Select Disk (# of your drive)

Clean

Convert GPT

 

 

once that spits out the "Successfully converted" message, go to Disk Management and assign it a drive letter.

You sure it successfully converted to GPT? Should be there, shown as initialized but not partitioned.

it has, diskpart says the conversion was successful but it has disapeared from disk managment however upon using the command list disk the drive shows up.

Try initializing it. Right click on the drive and hit initialize.

Screenshots would be helpful in seeing what you mean. 

 

Did you close and reopen Disk Management?

Try "List Volume" in diskpart.

upon following your advice by using the create partition primary size I went back into Disk Managment and I was able to assign it a letter, thank you so much for your time and support you have saved my drive and I am grateful for it.
