If the Windows Update troubleshooter didn't help, there are still other manipulations that can be done that you may see in the post Windows 10 Updates are not anymore working.

There is no such option in the WinRAR settings and that's for a good reason: temporary files are meant to be temporary. If you want to extract the files, you use the Extract feature in WinRAR.

Since list vol only shows those 3 volumes I'd argue that you need to create a volume on the new (at least I assume its new) disk. The easiest way to do this is opening up the "Disk Management" application and create a new volume there by right clicking on the unallocated space and then clicking "new simple volume".
