It is an internal NVME drive. I have valorant installed on a secondary disk space though. So it is not in the same disk partition as windows.

Time to troubleshoot fr then ig Open task manager Then details Close evry valorant,riot client and vanguard related apps/services Open control panel Uninstall programs Uninstall riot vanguard Open cmd as admin and type these commands:- 1) sc delete vgc 2)sc delete vgk Navigate to ur C drive then program files and find vanguard folder and delete it. Then open riot client and click update Restart ur pc after the update.
