After installation I can only see one partition and its a read only

You mean sda1 and sda2? sda1 contains just metadata, which is needed. and the reserved partition sda2 is need by windows to boot, not necessary.

So effectively only sda3 contains data…

Ok now when i see it, gparted says i have around 70% of unallocated space(refer 1 st image link). does that mean it considers my both partitions as a whole, right? Then why does it shows two different partitions in my file system?(refer 2nd image link)

Theses ones? That are not partitions, but the devices. Look at the Disk Model.

  • /dev/nvme0n1p2 → Filesystem
  • /dev/sda3 → Work

Yes the one is for ssd and othe rone is for hdd,
i meant if its seeing my 2 partitions as whole then why do i see 2 different ones in my file manager

Nevermind guys @Mirdarthos @megavolt Thanks for the help, i used gparted to merge these two partitions and it was good to go. Unfortunately i lost my data from that partition but i had a backup so no worries. I think the best solution to this is just merge your partitions before installing manjaro(this is just my opinion and im a total noob in Linux).

Thanks!! will check it out. if there are more resources i can take help from pls let me know.

And in general:
