Hi all i need some help. I have 3 partitions on my drive 1 with windows 7 1 with my pics and all that shit and 1 spare.
The spare one is empty but comes up as system active primary partition.
I need to make it into a logical drive. How can i do this?
and then create a logical drive within the container we call Extended partition like in FDISK.I doubt you can do that through the Diskpart Snap-in tool in Disk Management.The spare one is empty
Just like Radenight said, I too couldn't think of a reason to make logical drives. But if you really want to go ahead you must first make an EXTENDED partition in the and then create a logical drive within the container we call Extended partition like in FDISK.I doubt you can do that through the Diskpart Snap-in tool in Disk Management.
You have to use Diskpart.exe in Elevated Command prompt . You can find the syntax for availble commandline switches by typing "help" command like: Diskpart>HELP [ENTER]
Since there does not seem to be any great advantage by this change of partition from its status as a Primary Partition, I am not listing the step by step approach to the creation of a Logical drive unless you want me to post.
ok i will have a go and there is a very good reasons for this.
Skeldon,I need to encript the whole partition i am going to use truecript but i dont wana do the primary partition but as that one and the operating system partition are both primary it wont let me do it without doing them both.
Hi whoosh,Added to rep that was a great post cmm knowes his stuff .
Thank you for your clarification.
Can you take it from here or you need any help?
What is rep? Sorry to show my ignorance but that's the only way to learn. This is the second time from you. Last time when you posted that I thought it must be an abrreviation for some sort of Reprimand and I could not think of a reason for me getting a reprimand from the Forum as I did not break any rules and I did not hear from anyone either! But with your smiley, I am not concerned at all about whatever the matter is and I guess it is something good
