Thank you very much everyone and I apologize that Im responding so late. First, @Tolkem and @wizardfromoz I believe I had winows on sdd (a sata ssd) and sdc (a laptop hard dive), both were in a laptop before and I think i did not format them correctly, just deleted the files, which would leave the Windows files still on them, not sure if this helps at all. My local drive in windows was definitely sdd though, which made me believe that that was also the boot drive, or can they be seperate?Seems to be a consensus to check for ntfs-3g. I would guess Ubuntu includes that by default, but open up a terminal and confirm by:
I'm using Ubuntu-based Zorin, and I find it installed in /bin.
@f33dm3bits Im really sorry but I dont understand your instructions, Im a new Linux user, whats efi?
@stan Thanks for the help, when I run "which ntfs-3g" I get which ntfs-3g, also im almost certain that sdd is NOT a nvme, I pealed the sticker off but its not as fast as a nvme should be and it was the cheepest one I could find at the time.
Ill try unplugging my Linux drive and see what happens.
