Windows 7: Disk Problem - help please

26 Nov 2013   #11

Windows x64 Premium

Thanks again Greg. Must admit I'd forgotten that I had that partition on that drive. I'll have a look at the TrueCrypt forums to see what they say.

I have two copies of Windows (the original copy on disk 0 - which I want to keep in case I need to send the PC back under warrantee, and the actual version on disk 2 which is a hybrid SSD).

I'll have a look in the morning to see if I have spare disk space.

Are you able to access your data on the F partitions to back it up as at least two of these will need to be deleted before DISK0 will convert back to Basic as a single HD should be. It should have never been allowed to convert to Dynamic. What tipped it is the attempt to have six Primary Partitions instead of converting the fourth one to Logical to add as many adjacent Logicals as you want. So it won't convert back unless it only has four Primary. Then what I would do is just extend F all the way over to the right to use for data: Partition or Volume - Extend

Ask back if you have any questions about doing this.
