Hello,

One of my hard disk partition is unable to be formatted by Windows and when I try to open it, Windows ask me to format it.

It is now empty of programs and has a free space 37.5 GB and any program of checking hard disk can recognise it and asks me to plug it in just like it doesn't exist. How to fix this problem?

System Configuration: Windows XP Internet Explorer 7.0

Hi,
  • Just Right Click My Computer and choose Manage
  • Then at Computer Management choose Disk Management
  • At Disk 2, right click at your Protect Removable Disk ex: "Removable Disk (F:)"
  • Choose Change Drive Letter and Paths for .....
  • Simply Click REMOVE, then Click ADD
  • Try to format yours then try to copy another files


Hope, it fixes the issue!

hello
you have more than a method to solve your problem
--------------
method 1
first thru windows itself
start up your windows
right click on My computer > Manage> Disk managment
You will find your hard disk partitions
right click on the patition has the problem and click >Format
and the Yes on any messege will pop up and it will be formatted.
---------------
method 2
Using some boot cd like Hiren Boot or anyhow just use some application like Partition magic or Smart FDISK or Acronise disk director or even use Dos
whatever availble for you.. just tell me and I will tell you exactly how does this work

---------------
Method 3
download software which can do this like,, EASEUS patition manager or partition magic but I would prefere the two above methods

try and feedback ... good luck
