There is no write protection tab on this one, I am busy downloading Active Killdisk quick will let you know what the result is. I would really like to get it working as it was a gift from a customer and is quite funky.

Hi Brink

Nope it still failed right at the end of the format unfortunately, going to try and Kill it again and then see perhaps format and partition in Diskpart instead of Disk Manager.

Ok so after struggling for hours I came accross out an old flash drive that I remembered had the same issue, would not format. been lying in my draw for probably 2 years I followed your process as set out here by yourself, clean all, New primary partition etc etc and voila it worked 1st time. Guess I must resign myself to the fact that this one will now lie in the draw for a few years.

Thanks for all the help Brink< not going to give up on just yet will let you know if I find a solution.

Mike,

I hope you manage to get it to work again, but it does look like it may have died on you.

Hello and sorry for my English!
I would like to delete the "D" partition and I would like to have only one. In a few words to expand my "C" volume.
I read some of the post here and if I well understood it is possible and not so very complicated to do it.
Thank you for any help.

Hello Mariocap, and welcome to Seven Forums.

That's correct. This will be an easy one for you. You'll just need to delete the "D" partition until it shows as "unallocated". Afterwards, you'll be able to extend "C" into the unallocated space to have it added to "C".
