Is the problem you're referring to the fact that the partition is showing up in red because it is too full?

If this is the case, move some data out.

If you'd like to delete or repartition, then please post back a screenshot of Disk Managment drive map and listings (type Disk Management in Start Search box) using the Snipping Tool in Start Menu. Tell us exactly what you would like to do and we will advise you the steps.

I'm talking about Q partition.
It isn't even listed in disk manager.

I believe that is from MS Office.

There is a thread on this forum about removing it.

Deleting an empty partition also deletes a partition with data.
I recently cloned my HDD to a new SSD and that seemed to go okay. The original HHD had 2 partitions named Miscellaneous 1 and Miscellaneous 2. I honestly do not know where those 2 partitions came from. I guess I could have created them some years ago, but I just do not remember. As you would...
