    Drive Volumes


    My laptop has 100GB allocated to the C drive and 900GB allocated to F Drive.

    How can I allocate more space to the C drive as "extend volume" is greyed out in Disk Management? If I simply shrink volume of F Drive will it become available to extend volume of C drive? (both NTFS)

    :)

  2. Unable to create simple volume on new 1TB hard drive


    Just got a brand new HP computer with windows 10 Pro (64bit) preinstalled on an SSD. I am now adding a 1TB sata hard drive for storing data files. New HDD is installed as Disk 1 and is seen by Windows 10. I initialized it as an MBR basic disc. When I try to go to the next step of creating a volume, I right click on disk 1 and there is no option available to create a new simple volume. There are other volume options (mirror, raid, etc) but they are all greyed out. Simple is not even listed as an option. I went to DISKPART and using clean command, took it back to the start, then initialized it as a GBT. That didn't make a difference. Now I'm back to MBR again. I also did a List Volume command under DISKPART and confirmed there is no volume on this drive. I'm stuck. How can I get this drive to the point where I can format it and use it?
    Thanks!

    type in list volume..... your array volume should come up.... if so

    type in Select volume 7
    assign



    let me know if your volume is not there.

    Taptiles Volume

    Hi,

    I understand the inconvenience caused.

    I suggest you to try the steps below and check if it helps.

    1. After opening the game, right click on the sound icon in the taskbar and select "open volume mixer".

    2. If the particular game is listed, turn down the volume and check the result.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.
