    Finally! An alternative to eraser...

    it looks much cleaner then the eraser so that is a big step up.

    Eraseing a disk

    Hi Jeffrey

    What type of disc are you trying to Erase

    If it is a DVD, if it is DVD+R or DVD-R, that type of disk cannot be erased, they are write once disks

    If not, please explain exactly what type of disk you are tying to erase in more detail . . .

    Disk Management

    Hi Keith,

    Thanks for providing the detail that was requested previously. Since the disk management screen that you saw is showing greyed out options, we suggest that you follow the steps below to change the partition type of your internal drive:

    • Open Disk Management then right click the partition on the disk you want to covert and select Delete Volume.
    • Once you complete the process you will see the whole disk shown as two separate unallocated spaces. Right-click the disk and select Convert to GPT disk.

    After the conversion, you will be able to use the whole disk and then you can create new separate partitions.

    We look forward to your response to our queries.
