Windows 7: Cannot delete this partition/s

Cannot delete this partition/s

I have for some reason - probably a mistake I made when installing - an unwanted partition that I have tried to delete with disk management and Partition Wizard but it still comes back. If there is no way I can get rid of it then I might have to clone the main partitions and use another drive

Hi John -

It's not a partition. It's Unallocated space on the disk.

It's really not enough to bother with, but if you have everything backed up (files and image) and you want to play with the cool new partioning feature you can take the space up into C using How to extend partition easily with Partition Wizard - video help.

Thanks Greg just I noticed it when I went to clone to another drive to test an 8 upgrade on it. I did actually make a partition out of it bit that left two even smaller unallocated spaces and the partition deleted ok but put it back as it was LOL!!

The PW I use quite frequently and anyway a you say the amount of space is nothing got speak of

Thanks for the heads up again.
