    Windows 10 1809 drive occasionally disappears from disk management


    Look at this nice picture. Of course this is not the first time I see this "feature".


    Drive is visible in explorer. Drive is accessible from explorer. Drive is visible in 3rd party apps. Drive is healthy. Chkdsk passed ok for all partitions on this drive (you support bots don't ask me to do it again).


    But! There is no drive in Windows disk management!


    Again, I am asking these so called developers: can you make anything in your product reliable?

    Don't ask me to reboot: it doesn't solve this issue, the drive will disappear again in some few days-weeks. Fix it! Or hire someone who is able to do the job!


    Can you fix it? Or like usual - "thank you for your question, run chkdsk, or reboot, or switch some setting"?

    external hard drive showing up in device management but not disk management

    Hi,

    I recently tried to use a brand new Seagate 2TB External HD, but it is not showing up. It initially showed up, but after I tried reformatting it to exFAT32, it disappeared from the disk management list.

    I then tried:

    • refreshing the disk management list,
    • inserting into a different USB port,
    • re-starting my computer, and
    • uninstalling the device from device manager/letting it refresh,

    I still can't see it. There is no yellow error in the USB controller list.

    I'm on Windows 10.

    Intel i5-3317U @ 1.7GHz

    Any suggestions? Thanks!

    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

    Disk Management

    Hi Keith,

    Thanks for providing the detail that was requested previously. Since the disk management screen that you saw is showing greyed out options, we suggest that you follow the steps below to change the partition type of your internal drive:

    • Open Disk Management then right click the partition on the disk you want to covert and select Delete Volume.
    • Once you complete the process you will see the whole disk shown as two separate unallocated spaces. Right-click the disk and select Convert to GPT disk.

    After the conversion, you will be able to use the whole disk and then you can create new separate partitions.

    We look forward to your response to our queries.
