    How to Partition a Win10 Hard Drive when the Disk Management Screen shows no Unallocated Volume?

    Instructions.... Step 2. Click on Shrink Volume Option
    After shrinking the volume of your disk, Unallocated dialogue box in Disk Management screen. So, right click on the "Unallocated" box and then proceed to click on "New Simple Volume" box.

    Thank You!

  3. Recover Unallocated Disk Space

    Hi,DawnWilliams8

    My name is Erik. I'm an Independent Advisor and I'll be glad to help you today.

    I've looked for the details regards about your concern and kindly follow these basic steps

    You can used the diskpart.

    1. Open CMD (press the Windows key + R and type CMD then hit enter)

    2. In CMD type: Diskpart and hit enter

    3. In Diskpart type: list volume and hit enter

    4. Type: select volume X (X being the drive letter of your unallocated external hard drive) then hit enter (you can find out which Drive letter is assigned by looking in Disk Management)

    5. Type: "delete volume" and then hit Enter

    6. Type: "list volume" and then hit enter (If the tool is not able to create a new volume, follow the steps below)

    7. Type: "select volume X" and then hit Enter

    8. Type: "delete volume" and then hit Enter

    9.Type: "delete volume" override and then hit Enter

    10. Open Disk Management and try to create a new volume on the unallocated drive and set the file system to get the unallocated hard disk repaired.

    I hope this helps! Please let me know if you have any further concerns.

    Regards,

    Erik

    Both my fixed hard disks are showing unallocated - how to proceed

    Hard Drive Question

    Hit WindowKey+R, and type compmgmt.msc and hit enter.

    In the left hand pane of the window that pops up, select Disk Management.

    Your unallocated hard drive should show up there. Initialize, then format it. I suggest quick format. The long one is unnecessary.
