"The operation failed to complete because the Disk Management console

I also got the same problem and tried every option I could find and none worked. The partition would not format, even after deleting the volume and creating it again, the error would still return.
I worked out a way through this way:
I selected the Primary Volume, right clicked on it, selected Extend Volume. Next...next ..OKAY and the primary volume expanded to include the volume that would not format. I was satisfied with that after deciding I did not need the partition as a separate volume. There is an option to Shrink Volume if you want to recreate the volume.

disk part is also not showing that drive or volume so that I couldn't assign any letter to it ....
The problem is with internal hard disk not with external or usb disk ......
probably problem is caused when I installed Windows 10 technical preview alone with I install partition magic which suggests to check errors of drives and I press OK .....
Exactly The same happen to my laptop ,,,,

In my case i have 2 partition's (C and D, both primary) and i wanted to create new partition so i used "Partition Magic" from Hiren's BootCD, upon opening it (Booted CD) suggests to check for errors of drives and I pressed Okay and then i realized there is something wrong, so i quite from the program and rushed to see if everything is alright with my windows, but when i logged in to my windows i found out that one of my partitions are missing (The D partition)!

Here is a screenshot of the "Disk Management" and "My Computer"

I tried every option I could find online; starting from DISKPART trying to assign a new letter:

Till using variety of different 3'rd party partition software's. i'll list them down below with some screenshot's :
Keep in mind that some of them are 32 bit, so remember to install then in the (C:\Program Files (x86)) folder in case you were like me running x64 of windows.

1-Find and Mount Pro (Licensed)

2-EaseUS Partition Recovery 8.5 (freeware)
3-EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard Professional 10.8.0 (Licensed)
4-EASEUS Partition Master 12.5 (Licensed)
5-EaseUS Partition Master 12.9 Technician Edition (Licensed)
6-AOMEI Partition Assistant Pro Edition 5.1 (Licensed)

7-AOMEI Partition Assistant 7.2 Technician Edition (Licensed)
8-MiniTool Partition Wizard Professional 9.1 (Licensed)
9-Paragon Hard Disk Manager 15 Premium (Licensed)
10-MBR Regenerator v4.5

Long story short, ALL IN VAIN
UNTIL i noticed something in "EaseUS Partition Master".
By right clicking both the "C and D partition" from "EaseUS Partition Master", and clicking on "proprietaries" from the drop-down menu and then viewing the "Partition info" tab i've noticed that there is something odd going on with the "First Physical Sector and the Last Physical Sector " numbers for the two partition's!!
Here is How it looks like:
The operation failed to complete because theDisk Management console-easeus-partition-master-c-d.png

to make it simple, if to say the C drive sectors starts from 0 to 100 , the D drive had to be from 101 to 200, that would make some sense, But what i have is like the C starts from 0 to 100 and the D starts from 80 to 200 !!
IT DOESN'T"T ADD UP !!
so what i have to do is to fix the "Last Physical Sector" for drive C, and the "First Physical Sector" for drive D.

i managed to do it by shrinking down the C drive using any of the above partition software's (I went with AOMEI Partition Assistant Pro Edition).

Now after shrinking the C drive, it look like this:
The operation failed to complete because theDisk Management console-c-d_after.png
The operation failed to complete because theDisk Management console-c-d-b4-nd-after.png
The operation failed to complete because theDisk Management console-my-computer_after.png
The operation failed to complete because theDisk Management console-disk-management_after.png

All that's left is to Extend Volume C to have that unallocated space back to the C drive.

BS: in between, i managed to copy everything in my D Drive to a different location before attempting doing anything in case i end up loosing both of my partition's by using "Paragon Hard Disk Manager 15 Premium".
