Windows 7 merge partition.

I want to merge my windows drive ( F ) with some
un-allocated apace i created. using the windows disk management.

the problem is that i do not get an extend option when i right click the F drive.
i tried using partition magic ( EASUS ) but still the problem persists. as i m not able to drag the bars beyond the actual drive size , when i define the new drive size , it automatically reverts it back to its original.
my windows drive is full. and i want to add more space to it.
please help me.

SOURCE: Unable to delete or format C: hard drive even though drive says "HEALTHY"(system)

You can't delete the drive in which you are operating and reformat it. You need to do a system recovery with computer supplied CD or reinstall Windows with WIndows CD.

You know that all will be lost.

Reformat partition hard drive


To return your HD to the factory settings do a full system recovery using the recovery disks (CD or DVDs) you made when you first had the computer. This will return the whole computer to its as-shipped state: you will lose all your data and any software that you have installed. This will retain/re-install the original partition structure on your hard disk. To do this process you may also use the recovery partition on the hard disk.

To completely reformat the hard disk, in which case you will lose everything on it
press the start button at the bottom left of screen,
R-click on computer, and select manage. The computer management window will open. From the left pane click on disk management under 'storage'. A new pane will open, with information on the different disks in your computer. Select the disk on which the partition to be formatted is located. R-click on the partition to be formatted, and choose format, and ten work through the format wizard. (see http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/create-format-hard-disk-partition#create-format-hard-disk-partition=windows-7)
When you R-click on the partition other options will appear will appear as well as format, choose the appropriate option to create a new partition, merge, etc, By successively working your working your way through the partitions you may format/merge some while retaining others.

Samsung m3 portable external hard drive not showing in my computer


Try going Start -> Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Computer Management -> Storage -> Disk Management (This is for Windows 7, the process might be a little different for other Windows versions).

With any luck you will see your 1TB partition on here. You can then right click on it and select 'delete volume' if necessary, and then format it. Make sure you are formatting the correct partition.

The issue for me was that Windows did not recognise the partition on the external, and therefore was not displaying it because it assumed it was data from an unrecognised filesystem, and therefore didn't want to mess with it.

I am using a 848P-A motherboard. I have just installed a SATA hard disk and changed OnChip IDE Device>Onchip Serial ATA to "Enhanced"(intend to use the new SATA drive as a secondary drive) but...


1. Does your new SATA hard drive can be seen in BIOS or POST. if yes 2. Does this new drive shown in "my computer" it should be no or under device manager is should be yes. 3. Use disk management.
To start Disk Management:
  1. Log on as administrator or as a member of the Administrators group.
  2. Click Start, click Run, type compmgmt.msc, and then click OK.
  3. In the console tree, click Disk Management. The Disk Management window appears. Your disks and volumes appear in a graphical view and list view. To customize how you view your disks and volumes in the upper and lower panes of the window, point to Top or Bottom on the View menu, and then click the view that you want to use.


To create a new partition or logical drive on a basic disk:
  1. In the Disk Management window, complete one of the following procedures, and then continue to step 2:
    • To create a new partition, right-click unallocated space on the basic disk where you want to create the partition, and then click New Partition.
    • To create a new logical drive in an extended partition, right-click free space on an extended partition where you want to create the logical drive, and then click New Logical Drive.
  2. In the New Partition Wizard, click Next.
  3. Click the type of partition that you want to create (either Primary partition, Extended partition, or Logical drive), and then click Next.
  4. Specify the size of the partition in the Partition size in MB box, and then click Next.
  5. Decide whether to manually assign a drive letter, let the system automatically enumerate the drive, or do not assign a drive letter to the new partition or logical drive, and then click Next.
  6. Specify the formatting options you want to use by using one of the following procedures:
    • If you do not want to format the partition, click Do not format this partition, and then click Next.
    • If you want to format the partition, click Format this partition with the following settings, and then complete the following procedure in the Format dialog box:
      1. Type a name for the volume in the Volume label box. This is an optional step.
      2. Click the file system that you want to use in the File system box.

        You can change the disk allocation unit size, and then specify whether to perform a quick format, or enable file and folder compression on NTFS volumes.
      Click Next.

  7. Confirm that the options that selected are correct, and then click Finish.
The new partition or logical drive is created and appears in the appropriate basic disk in the Disk Management window. If you chose to format the volume in step 6, the format process now starts.

To format a partition, logical drive or basic volume:
  1. In the Disk Management window, right-click the partition or logical drive that you want to format (or reformat), and then click Format.
  2. In the Format dialog box, type a name for the volume in the Volume label box. This is an optional step.
  3. Click the file system that you want to use in the File system box. If you want, you can also change the disk allocation unit size, specify whether you want to perform a quick format, or enable file and folder compression on NTFS volumes.
  4. Click OK.
  5. Click OK when you are prompted to format the volume. The format process starts.

Thanks, looking forward to fix your problem, just give a feedback if this helps.

Pls help me to partition my hard disk drive as c and D


If the computer is already running with Windows, then you can use a program called Partition magic to partition the C drive into two partitions - a C and a D drive.
If you are installing Windows from scratch then you can use the Windows installation CD to install Windows. When the Windows installation begins, delete the existing partition, then create a new partition but size the 1st partition (C drive) to what you require and continue with the installation.
When Windows has finished installing you can create the D drive by opening Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Computer Management - Disk Management - click on the un-partitioned portion of the hard disk, create a extended partition - and then format this partition in NTSF When completed Disk 1 will be shown as Healthy (system)

What to do with unreadable but recognised hard disk segate 400GB


Your Windows Xp bootable CD should have an option called "Format his file system using FAT32" while installing the OS. Use the option to format it. The only prob is that it creates only a single partiotion. After installing windows you can re-partition using a third party software such as Partition Magic(please note that it will not affect your windows installation as you can first re-size the windows drive to a lower capacity and then partition the un-allocated space.

Maxtor hard drive installation


Its a long process! First you have to transfer your saved files to disk. CD,DVD, or Floppy. Insert your copy of windows Install disk and turn your computer off and then back on. When Windows asks you if you want to repair or install a fresh version of windows, click fresh version. Have your copy of Serial Numbers ready for your Windows disk. Somewhere in the installation Windows will ask you if you want to install windows to the same drive? Delete this Partition? or Create a Partition?, Know how many Gigabyte or Megabyte your Hard drive is. Click on Delete Partition, Your Hard Drive is now Un-allocated. Now Click Create Partition and enter the amount of Bytes you want to allocate to C: drive, Usually half of what the computer is showing you what you have. Now you have a primary drive of C: and Un-Allocated space, Scroll down with your arrow key and select the unallocated drive and click create drive, the remainder of bytes on your drive will be allocated to that drive and assigned a different drive letter. (D) or what ever. Go back up to C: drive and say install windows to that drive, and from there just follow the windows installation. Good Luck.
