  1. Mystery Virtual Disk


    I've got a mystery virtual disk and I have no idea what it is, where it is or where it came from.

    I can see it in Device Manager, I can see it in Intel SSD toolbox, but there's nothing in Disk Management. I've unhidden empty drives and files too.

  2. mysterious virtual disk

    If your disk is GPT-initialized (required for UEFI devices) it would have an EFI System partition, formatted FAT32.

    If above is true, at an Administrator CMD Prompt, run diskpart:

    diskpart

    list disk <--- a GPT disk will show an asterisk in the GPT column

    select vol C

    list partition

    Do you see a partition of type MSR? It should be 16MB or 128MB in size, but not formatted. If this is missing, it can cause various issues.

    If your disk is not a GPT disk, it will not have an MSR partition.
