  1. local disk C


    Hi,

    After reinstalled Windows 10 in the desktop, the Local Disk C: goes to the SSD 32GB. It is full as only 29 GB.

    At the same time, there is a Windows F: appears in the HHD 2TB with 1.8TB volume, mainly empty files.

    Due to no volume in the Local Disk C, I cannot reinstall the apps. or restore my files from my backup drive.

    I can't extend the Local disk C volume in disk management due to they are 2 disks- disk 0 and 1.

    Will it solves the problem if reinstall Win 10 again? or move Local Disk C to HHD from SSD as I thought Local C supposed in HHD? and how to do?

    Any suggestion out there? Thanks a lot.

    Regards,

    Lee

    :)

    local disk C

    why do 2 Local Disks get isolated?

    This HP has a new SSD. I just now found this and wonder if it is stupids and/or dangerous to try <

    "How to delete EFI partition with Diskpart

    Step 1. Hit "Windows Key + R to open the run dialogue box, enter "diskpart" and click "OK" to open a black command prompt window.
    Step 2. Type "list disk" to display all the disks of your computer. Type "select disk n" to identify which disk you need to work with. Here n stands for the disk letter.
    Step 3. Type "list partition" to display all the volumes on the hard drive. Type "select partition n" to identify which partition you want to remove. Here n stands for the volume letter.
    Step 4. Type "delete partition override" to remove the EFI partition. Finally, type "exit" to close the windows when you receive the message says, DiskPart successfully deleted the selected partition"

    just for a better understanding, but not wanting to complete it, I took these steps >

    so C: should be using 70GB I assume (461- 391)

    Am sure my lack of expert knowledge is showing!
