    Partition error?


    Windows 10 Home, version 1903. I normally backup to an external usb hard drive using Macrium without any problem. Now I cannot anymore and get an error telling me 'partition 1' is invalid. I have no idea what partition 1 is or how it came to be created. I get the same error even if I do not include 'partition 1' in the backup. I am including relevant screenshots. Can I delete 'partition 1'? What should I do? Thank you.

    :)

    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

    Reserved Partition Error - Fix Doesn't Work


    When I registered my Windows 10 and went for updates, I got the stated error message (couldn't update the system reserve partition). On Microsoft's site, they list the steps you need to take to rectify the error. I was simply trying to follow the instructions.

    Apparently, I have insufficient space on the System Reserved partition.
