StoreMi Bricked Hard Drives?

Hi all,

Recently I updated StoreMi to the latest version. Since that update, my computer began to get slower and slower, and the cached files were getting larger and larger (up to 14TB in queue at one point!). This was until I cold booted and was left on a black screen on boot-up for five minutes. I hard reset, and this resulted in my entire Windows install being corrupted. My desktop flashed continuously, only task manager could be used reliably.


Tried booting into safe mode, could reach desktop but no programmes would load due to corrupted sys files.


Now I feel like I'm out of luck and want to just reinstall Windows, but can't do that on the StoreMi drives. Is there anyway to unpair these two drives without a fully-functional version of Windows?


Does anyone think that something else is wrong potentially unrelated to StoreMi? Would love to hear any thoughts you have. Because at the moment I am left with a giant paper weight.

Perhaps enmotus could assist with some diagnosis here?

Specs: AMD Ryzen 2700X, ASUS Prime X470 motherboard, Samsung 970 Evo 512GB & WD Black 2TB, GTX 1080 SLI.


Thank you for any help you can provide.
