Windows 7: Unable to partition

27 Jan 2014   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium x64

Not sure if it will help, but after restart when I tried deleting a partition (in Disk Management) it failed but the previously installed MacDrive popped up and tried doing something with it, and both partitions were deleted leaving me with an unallocated hard drive I then formatted to exFAT, so my problem is solved, but how or why I'm not sure. Hopefully my posts can help someone else who may stumble across the problem and forum post!
