All of these are on the same hdd
That's fair enough.
However your picture shows 5 partitions on that HDD.
You can have 4 Primary Partitions on the same HDD, if you only want a maximum of 4 partitions.
If you need/want more than 4 partitions, you can only have 3 Primary Partitions + extra Extended Partition(s).
Disk partitioning - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The total data storage space of a PC hard disk can be divided into at most four primary partitions, or alternatively three primary partitions and an extended partition
. These partitions are described by 16-byte entries that constitute the Partition Table
, located in the master boot record.
Since your HDD has 5 partitions, it shouldn't be able to have 4 Primary Partitions. Something strange is happening.
What is the 3.72 GB partition?
Is your all of your data backed up?
If you have backed up your data AND there is nothing on the 3.72 GB partition, try deleting it.
Alternatively, you could try to create another partition after "Data G:" and copy the data from the 3.72 GB partition to it and then delete the original 3.72 GB partition.
Another option, wait until one of the HDD experts (on this forum) reads this thread.
