Drivers/Hardware :: Unknown Partition / File System - Cannot Edit Or Remove

Nov 13, 2015

I was in the process of updating several sata controllers and chipset drivers. I also installed a new USB 3.0 hub and was in the process of moving around several devices between ports. I had a problem with my keyboard which uses USB 2.0 as a connector but I would recieve a "Unknown USB Device (Port Reset Failed)" code 43 on every port on the USB 3.0 Hub. I finally gave up and put the keyboard back into the 2.0 ports on my motherboard. When I finally fixed everything. I realized my DVD drive was not working. I had to reconnect the SATA cables because it got disconnected while I was moving my PC around. Upon the last restart of my PC.

I checked Disk Managment and noticed lots of system reserved partitions and drives which were not there before. What happened but I think updating several drivers and the combination of reinstalling USB ports via device manager or the optical drive being reconnected may have messed up how windows used to have system reserves as partitions. I only had one visible system reserved drive before, now I have 2 visible and lettered system reserved drives.

I also have a unknown partition at the top of the list, I cannot right click that partition and select any options. The only option in my context menu which brings me a link to Overview of Disk Management

I also had my video quick access as my DVD optical drive when I restarted. I have fixed this issue by changing my quick access links back to their proper folders and it removed the duplicate Videos Icon. My quick access links were remapped to the G: drive (CD Drive), they were usually on the F: drive. Why Windows did that during my driver updates and restarts.

I have only provided the above information to know what the unknown partition is and why I cannot modify or remove it. It's the recovery partition of the C: Drive. The System Reserved E: Drive, System Reserved D: Drive are both considered primary partitions.

Should I be concerned or is this all normal?

Drivers/Hardware :: Can Remove EFI Partition From Non System Disk

Aug 17, 2015

I have a drive that I want to use as a backup drive for a Windows 10 machine. The problem is the old drive has a boot partition on it that is making Windows 10 go nuts every time I plug it in. If I wait until after the machine boots and then plug it in via USB adapter then I can get to the files but I want to install it inside the machine permanently.A photo of the Disk Manager is below. How do I (or should I) remove that EFI System Partition? The Disk Manager won't let me do it.

Drivers/Hardware :: Combine Unallocated Space To System Partition

Dec 17, 2015

I had 2 useless partitions, one at the very beginning of my HD and the second at the very end. My setup is GPT Basic btw.

I would like to know, using MiniTool Partition Wizard version 9.1, if it is possible to merge these former partitions (now 'unallocated' space) into the Windows partition (C??

I right clicked on both of the unallocated space 'partitions' but any operations (namely, move) was greyed out.

I would like to clean up the disk layout (even if we are talking about only 1 GB. of space)

Unwanted / Unknown IP Address On System

Jan 26, 2016

my ASUS X54C Computer, powered by Windows 10. My conversion was smooth and seemed to function well but after Chrome 47 was rolled out in late Nov/early December, I had so much trouble, that I temporarily switched to Firefox as a browser. Lately, it seemed to be functioning well and I went back to Chrome. Last week, without warning, my printer was switched to offline and running the Windows Diagnostic just produced an ERROR message. Today, I tried to install a new printer which my computer did not recognize so I called a techie. It seems that an unknown IP address had installed itself on my hard drive and things were inadvertently being shut down without my knowledge.
That has been corrected/removed (and a McAfee Virus Scan has so far not revealed any issues) but here is my question: I recently sent about 135 emails through Eventbrite - could any of those emails addresses been compromised by coming from my computer or do I assume that Eventbrite's system is rigorous enough to weed out any unwanted passengers?

Unknown File Opening Upon Turning On Laptop?

Feb 10, 2016

A file called backup.txt is trying to open every time I turn on my laptop. It never opens because there's no default application for the file, so Windows usually asks me which app I want to open it with. I chose notepad because it was a txt file, but nothing happened.

Adding Old File / Edit / Tools Menu To Folders?

Sep 25, 2015

I was looking to see if there is a way to add the W7 File, Edit, Tools, Help, etc. Menus to W10 Folders. I searched but found nothing at all. Maybe I am not searching correctly or calling it the correct thing.

If not, is there any way to add commands to the Quick Access Toolbar in Folders? I see you can add some limited stuff like Redo, Rename, etc. But I would like to add some basic commands like copy and paste, etc.

File Explorer Rename - Name Select Delay Interrupts Edit

Sep 4, 2015

When renaming a file in File Explorer I am frequently, but not always, stymied by the system re-selecting the entire filename whilst I am in the midst of editing it. It occurs anytime from 1-2s after I start editing up to 10s or more. I typically am using the back arrow to move to the point I am editing, and Shift+arrow to select text. It may happen before or after I have used Shift+arrow to select text.It's frustrating because I have to essentially anticipate the system possibly reselecting the whole filename, and if it does, restart my edit again.

Jan 14, 2016

I have a 1TB external USB hard drive, it is not showing up in 'my computer' the light on the hard drive is constantly flashing and randomly beeps and clicks when first plugged in, I have never heard this until today..

I have tried it on two laptops, windows 7 and windows 10 and in a macbook, does not show up.

I have tried a different cable from another USB device, still no luck.

It appears in device manager which says it is running normally, I have tried un-installing and re-installing, no luck! In disk manager it says the disk is unknown and not initialized, see screenshot.

Reading other forums suggest trying Minitool partition wizard it comes up but as 0GB, screenshot

Drivers/Hardware :: Unknown Device Disconnected Sounds

Jan 10, 2016

I am getting numerous Device Disconnected sounds and occasionally Device Connected sounds.

I am trying to trace the source of these and started looking in the event logs.

There does not appear to be any events with Critical or Error tags showing.

Should the Device Disconnected event create a log entry?

If it does not can one be created to give me a clue as to what has been disconnected? Everything still appears to be working after a Device Disconnected sound is heard.

CPU: Intel i7-4930K 3.4GHz

EFI System Partition - C Drive

Sep 7, 2015

I have a fat32 100mb system partition in my windows disk management it's also showing in aomei partition assistant file system fat32, capacity 100mb, used space 28.75 mb free space 71.25 mb flag is gpt,efi status is system. Installed windows 10 from a usb flash drive and I could not convert from efi to gpt or something like that so I deleted the windows partition which is my c drive (ssd) and that's when I got this showing up in windows.

Can I copy the boot files to the c drive and just deleted this system partition and use the partition software to merge the space back to the c drive so I can use it. Or do I have to reformat and start all over again? I deleted the c drive partition that windows was on and created a new one and it created reserved space and recovery space which I have got ride of and deleted and merged the unallocated space for both back to the c drive.

I hesitate about doing anything with this partition until I'm sure of what I'm doing so that My computer will still boot up. I can only boot into windows 10 from the windows boot manager and not straight from the cdrive the primary (SSD).

Installation :: No System Reserved Partition On SSD

Aug 18, 2015

I have an SSD with WIN7 installed. It has no System Reserved Partition (SRP) and thus no boot files on that nonexistent partition.

I've read here that individuals with a SRP of only 100mb have had issues installing WIN 10 and that those issues were resolved by expanding the SRP from 100mb to 450mb.

Will WIN 10 install if I have no SRP? Will it merely alter the boot files on my C drive?

Updates :: System Reserved Partition Not Updating

Sep 15, 2015

I'm trying to update from 8.1 64-bit to 10 on my i7 24GB Toshiba laptop. I keep getting the message "Windows 10 couldn't be installed. We couldn't update the system reserved partition."

The very first try "failed" with an error Code C1900200. After that, every installation attempt shows "canceled" w/ an error Code 8024000B.

Note: "DISK 1" is my primary (boot) disk; "DISK 0" is my data disk. Both disks are 256Gb SSD drives. Other info is in my System Specs.

I do not see a "reserved partition" on Disk 1; could this be the problem? I'd rather not do a clean install, in order to keep existing programs/settings etc., but will do so if necessary.
