    Diskpart Missing Information


    Windows 10 Pro, 64-bit, version 22H2

    In File Explorer, one of my partitions shows as E, formatted NTFS. In Diskpart, it shows as Volume 3, but is missing it's Ltr (should be E) and Fs (should be NTFS). Any ideas how to correct this?

    Also, is there a way to merge this volume with some unallocated space I have on the same disk?

    Thank you for any help.

    Select the volume and add a drive letter

    e.g.

    assign letter=E

    I suggest you post a screenshot of your Disk mgmt

    The 'assign letter=e' wasn't accepted in diskpart; I'm guessing because the volume has the e already assigned, as I noted that it appears in File Explorer (and Disk Management).

    I've added the screenshot as suggested, plus one from diskpart as well. Volume 3 is the one I've asked about.

    In diskpart, try "automount scrub"

    Code:
    C:\Windows\System32>diskpart
    
    Microsoft DiskPart version 10.0.22621.1
    
    Copyright (C) Microsoft Corporation.
    On computer: RAIDER
    
    DISKPART> automount scrub
    
    DiskPart successfully scrubbed the mount point settings in the system.
    
    Automatic mounting of new volumes enabled.

    I entered 'automount scrub' and restarted. No change. Why would the partition show the letter (E) and format (NTFS) in File Explorer and Disk Management, but not in diskpart?

    No clue. Try removing the letter from in it Disk Management and then reassign it.

    The Disk Management approach did not work. I just ran the MiniTool Partition Wizard and merged my E partition with a newly created (from unallocated space) F partition, which worked fine. I then opened diskpart and the 'new' volume 3 shows correctly (E disk, NTFS). Thanks for all replies.

    As a follow-up, I recently noticed I have Recovery folders on 3 of my 4 disk partitions. How can I find how these were created? Since 2 of my partitions (S and T) are essentially backups, I'd like to know how this happened.

    My S drive shows as System; which I would have thought would be my C drive, where Windows 10 is loaded. Any explanations on how this could be?

    I'm adding these questions here because this thread contains the screen shots of disk management and diskpart.

    Thank you for any help.

    You system is a mess.
    It's because you once had Win 10 on the drive (you also have 3 partitions set as Active) and you didn't cleaned the drive (delete all partitions and create a new one) you just formatted the partition that had Windows.
    To find out witch recovery partition is in use, open a CMD window as administrator and type:
    Reagentc /info

    If the recovery partition in use is the one in drive 1 you can delete the other recovery folders.

    You have to find out if your drive 1 is self booting. Shut down and detach (SATA or power cable) drive 0 and 2 and see if you can boot from drive 1 normally. If positive you can set drive 0 and 2 as non activee. With Mini Tool you can set the partitions as non active.
