    New update creates new partition


    I just noticed after the recent windows update that I now have 2 recovery partitions on my computer and an F drive magically appeared. I can't remove either partition or hide them. Not sure if this is a new windows issue or if my machine is just going crazy. Any help/insight on this would be appreciated. This is annoying the hell outta me.

    :)

    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

  3. Getting a new PC tommorow...

    • Set up your hardware
    • Insert CD/DVD install
    • Format a partition of 30GB as a quick format
    • Install the OS
    • Create a new partition D: for data, and S: for setupfiles
    • Put all your install files into S
    • Before installing, run windows update
    • Once up to date, reboot
    • Install AV
    • Update AV
    • NOW install any drivers
    • And then any software
    • Top Utils: ccleaner, defraggler, tclock, utramon, winrar, irfanview, wordweb, malwarebytes, speedfan,
    • Now create a partition copy of your C: into a hidden partition. If you evey need to reformat, you just copy the setup from the hidden partition
    • You might want Acronis Disk Director to do the previous step. Easy

    New update creates new partition

    creat a new volume/partition

    Hi,

    Creating a new partition in Windows 10.

    To create a new partition, the hard disk drive must contain unallocated space that is not part of an existing partition. Shrink the volume on an existing drive to create unallocated space, then create and format a new partition, using the following steps.


    • In Windows, search for and open Create and format hard disk partitions.

    • Right-click the Windows (CNew update creates new partition :) drive, or another drive on the computer.


    • Click Shrink Volume... from the drop-down menu to create unallocated space.

      Figure : Shrink volume

      New update creates new partition c04789571.jpg

      The Shrink window opens.

    • Without making any changes to the settings in the Shrink window, click
      Shrink.

      Figure : Shrink volume C:

      New update creates new partition c04789572.jpg

      When the shrink process is complete, the new partition displays in the Disk Management utility as Unallocated space.

    • Right-click the new partition, then select New Simple Volume... from the drop-down menu.

      Figure : Creating a new simple volume

      New update creates new partition [​IMG]

      The New Simple Volume Wizard displays.

    • Click Next.
      The Specify Volume Size window displays.

    • Click Next to accept the default setting (recommended), or change the value in the Simple volume size in MB field, and then click
      Next.

      Figure : Specify Volume Size

      The Assign Drive Letter or Path window displays.

    • Select a drive letter from the drop-down menu, then click Next.

      Figure : Assign Drive Letter or Path

      The Format Partition window displays.

    • To name the drive, type a name in the Volume label field.


    • Click Next.

      Figure : New Simple Volume Wizard

      New update creates new partition [​IMG]

      The Completing the New Simple Volume Wizard window displays.

    • Click Finish.

      Figure : Settings in Completing the New Simple Volume Wizard

      The Disk Management utility shows the formatting progress, and then displays the New Volume.

    Hope this helps. Thank you.
