just a wild guess: Do you happen to have activated the "Use" button at
the RAM fs node? If yes, Sculpt will use the RAM file system for the
depot and nothing will be permanent. Only one "Use" button can be active
at a time. As long as you use the RAM fs for your depot, no other "Use"
button will be presented. You have to click on the "Use" button again to
un-use the file system.

You have to click on the "Storage" node instead. Your hard disk should
show up. Select the 3rd partition and click on the "Use" button there.
But before doing that, I'd recommend clicking on the "Expand" button to
let the partition expand to the full capacity of your hard disk.
