  1. Can not get partition back


    Hello!


    I was attempting to make a partition Drive D: so I could clone our PC onto our laptop. Ended up not needing it.


    I followed the steps given by a YouTube video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pdHjolzl7Gk&t=33s and followed them triple checking every action as well to reverse the partitioning again triple checking but ended up with the issue shown below. When I right click on the Unallocated partition the only option I'm given is "New Simple Volume". I've tried that and I get the same message. I hate to have that much space unusable. Any help would be great!!

    W7 Hard drive partition issue

    to get rid of that 100 meg windows partition that setup creates for you on a new install on a blank hdd:

    - press shift+f10 when on the partition management screen in setup <-- this opens a command prompt
    - diskpart <-- start the windows command line partition management tool
    - list disk <--- list the installed hdds in this computer for the next step
    - select disk 0 <- might have to replace 0 with the number of the correct disk
    - clean <-- this will erase all data on the disk you selected one step up- dont use the wrong disk!
    - create partition primary <- creates a primary partition taking up all space on the drive, adjust the command if necessary
    - exit, exit to exit diskpart and the command prompt
    - click refresh in partition manager and select your newly created partition and install to that

    hard partition

    Hi Prasad,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community.

    I understand that you are trying to extend the Volume of Drives and create partitions from C: drive.

    I would suggest you to follow the steps and check if it helps you.

    • Press Windows + R keys, type diskmgmt.msc hit
      enter.
    • Disk management will open. Right click on the C: drive
      below in the segments of the partitions.
    • Select Shrink Volume. Select the Amount of space
      you want to extend in MBs (1GB = 1024MB).
    • Follow the instruction and check if it creates a Unallocated Drive.
    Later after the Unallocated drive is created follow the below steps to crate a partition.

    • Right click on the Unallocated drive and select
      New Simple Volume.
    • Select the Drive letter and follow the instructions and check if it
      creates a partition.
    • Follow the same to Create partition.
    Note: C: drive must be not less than 100GB if you are using a 1TB hard drive. partitions must not be more than 3 drives to have a better functioning of the system.

    Keep us posted to help you better.
