    ESD USB (EPart of ssd turned into ESD-USB :) Query

    Don't touch the System Reserved drive - that is managed by Windows 10 - you could brick your system if you mess with that partition!

    The ESD USB is a partition on your Backup Drive. It is probably showing up in Windows File explorer as Drive E, but it is just a partition . . .

    At some stage you must have used the Media Creation Tool to create that partition for installing or updating Windows.

    • You should now delete that ESD USB partition in Disk Management, it will become unallocated space
    • You also have another 746GB unallocated space on that backup drive
    • Right click and extend the middle partition to claim back all the unallocated on that drive

  3. Restore previous data before external harddrive was made ESD-USB bootable drive

    Hi Ashish,

    ESD-USB is only the name of windows installation file and it is on its own disk partition.
    Your data and files are still on the disk but windows can´t see them. When you open the
    Disk Manager you should see empty space behind your ESD-USB. We have found a thread with the same issue as yours, we suggest that you follow the steps given by

    Accidentally Converted External Hard Drive to "ESD-USB"

    Hi Greg,

    I downloaded the Media Creation Tool and got to to the part about downloading windows, I never chose anything else. And I had an external USB stick and a harddrive connected. Needless to say I want to focus on the USB stick. I never choose anything. All
    of a sudden my USB harddisk just had ESD-USB partition and the other part was lost.
