diskpart has to be accessed while booting up, if you access it while the OS is running you'll get that message as it does not want to erase the OS.

Hello again mate.


If you're referring to the clean all outlined in this same tutorial, I couldn't count the times I've done my Intel, it was the test-bed for this tutorial, I've probably done very close to a hundred wipes to it so far and will do more in the very near future.

Hello my friend!

Actually just the disk clean up that's in the system tools under accessories was what I was referring to. I need to read about the clean all in the tutorial, cause if you use it I know it is good!

regarding SSD / HDD : Optimize for Windows Reinstallation
When using diskpart, I'm noticing it never wants you to format when I go back in to the installer. Am I correct in assuming diskpart will format the drives with NTFS? Do I need to realign the SSD on the reinstall? Thank you :)
