  2. How to remove external hard disk from storage pool on Windows 10

    Hi Velen,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community.

    I understand your concern about removing the external hard disk from storage pool, we will help you with this issue.

    Try the below steps to: Remove a physical disk by using Windows PowerShell
    and check if it helps.


    • Press Windows
      key from the keyboard, type Windows PowerShell and select
      Run as administrator.


    • Enter the command replacing <diskname> with the disk name:

      • Set-PhysicalDisk -FriendlyName <diskname> -Usage Retired
    (If the pool is clustered, you will need to run this command on the cluster node which has the cluster resource for the pool online.)

    3. Prior to performing step 5, you must wait for all active repair jobs to complete. To monitor the status of repair jobs, type the following command:
    Get-StorageJob

    4. Type the following command: Remove-PhysicalDisk -FriendlyName <diskname>

    5. Physically disconnect the old disk.

    Hope it helps. Reply to the post with an updated status of this issue for further assistance.

    disk space reduced after media creation tool

    Hi Sarah,

    One of the possible reasons why your disk space was reduced is due to an unallocated disk space on your partitions. For us to isolate your concern, we suggest that you check your device's partition. To do this, follow the steps provided below:

    • Type Computer Management on Ask me anything and press
      Enter.
    • Select Storage and click on Disk Management.
    • Send us a screenshot.
    We look forward to your response.

    Disk management console view is not up-to-date

    i dont know how to fix your disk management, but i can fix your partition problems...




    open up Command Prompt with admin rights. (Right click, run as admin)


    enter in
    DISKPART
    list disk

    then find the Disk number for your Raid array... lets call it number 7 ( you can tell what disk is what by the total size)
    type in

    Select Disk 7
    List Partition (will give you a list of all the partitions..)
    Select Partition 1 (im assuming you only have 1 partition on Disk 7) repeat this step if you have more partitions.
    ASSIGN


    that should get the array up and running ready to use.


    EDITED.

    any problems, post back ^^


    Still EDITING *Stick Out Tongue Storage Disk :p

    side question, have you tried restarting the PC?

    Disk keeps filling, but none of the categories listed in Settings>system>storage are...: I'm very confused here. The disk fills completely until it simply doesn't even show the blue/red bar in This PC.
