After reformat, still remain system file in previous partition

Hi There,

After I install OS into the new partition (Local Disk C), the previous partition (Local Disk F) that used to be OS still remain all the system file, besides that all my folder in the partition is collapse, I can access all the folder but can't copy to another partition. (sometimes can but the transfer speed is very slow 10kb-50kb.)

Here is the image after enable hidden folder in the partition (Local Disk F) :


I hope to have a way to solve this problem and get all my data back or copy to another partition.

Thanks.

Hello rikileong and welcome to Seven Forums.

Could you post a screenshot of your Disk Management. It will give more information about each of the partitions. Please make sure you follow the instructions in Step 5 to maximize the Disk Management window.

In Elevated Command Prompt
Code:
diskpart
sel  vol  e:
inactive
sel  vol  f:
inactive
exit
E and F aren't bootable partitions. So why mark them active? Very strange... normally only one primary on physical disk can be active. Did you do some hack?

Become owner of files on F. Afterwards give yourself read permissions on F. Then you can copy

Copying from G and H is slow as well?
Copying from D is slow as well?
Copying form I and J is slow as well?


If you can't copy due to permissions:
  • Become owner of the folder and anything below
  • Give yourself read access to the folder and anything below
