    Unable To Assign Letter To Disk Partition In Disk Management 4dfb1042-b204-4ba6-81bd-7faf292c4c5d?upload=true.png


    I Tried Other Software Like MiniTool Partition Wizard But That Didn't Help As well


    I Thought That I Would Recover My Data From The inaccessible Partition And Then Format The Partition But The Software That I Was Using Only Allowed Me To Scan The Files whenever I Tried To Save The Scanned Files Onto Another Drive It Asked For Money...!!


    Plz Help...........!!!

    :)

  2. 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 Unable To Assign Letter To Disk Partition In Disk Management :p

    side question, have you tried restarting the PC?

    My RAID array is DISK 1, and Partition 1 1192.09 Gb

    Unable To Assign Letter To Disk Partition In Disk Management

    Unable to assign/remove drive letters using disk-management

    Prior to Win10/1803 it was possible to unhide hidden partitions (e.g. the system disks recovery partition) using Control Panel => Administrative Tools => Computer Management => Disk management => right-click on the partition and choosing "Assign or change
    a drive letter".

    I just tried that today and all the right-click menu offered was an entry "Help" - which was of no help... Unable To Assign Letter To Disk Partition In Disk Management :(

    I then started diskpart and was able to assign and remove drive letters to that partition (and other hidden ones) at will. Why is that functionality not properly working in disk-management anymore?
