    Hi,
    Hoping you can help, my primary SSD failed boot and now I can't format it.
    I built a new primary boot using a spare SSD however this original SSD is showing in Disk Management as Healthy GPT Protective Partition.
    Any idea how I can format it?

    I tried diskpart clean but fails with an error.

    Motherboard - ASUS PRIME X570-P
    Problem SSD - WD_BLACK SN850 1 TB
    O/S - Windows 11 Home

    You could download WD's Acronis software and do a removal of all data on the ssd.

    Try that and see if this helps, if not I will find more ways to help you.:)
