    Open a command prompt with admin privileges (Run as Administrator). Then:
    Code:
    diskpart
    select disk 4
    list part  <- make sure you have the correct disk!
    clean
    convert gpt
    create part pri
    format fs=ntfs quick
    assign
    exit
    exit
    You will then have a nice, clean, empty Disk 4 with one partition and a drive letter on it.

    Yes, but the problem and solution would likely be identical in Windows 11 and 10.

    Possibly but where's the cutoff point, 11forum may as well be closed based on your logic.

    Overreact much? There are problems that are common between Windows 10 and Windows 11 that can be answered in either forum, and there are problems that will be specific to Windows 10 or Windows 11. So maybe instead of nitpicking a person asking for help we should instead focus on helping that person. Isn't that what this whole family of forums is about, helping people? Or would you suggest that myself and jagjr129 be banned from tenforums because we are running Windows 11? There is that little triangle with the ! in it. Go ahead and click on it.

    Thanks for all of the replies. This has now been resolved. Upon opening command prompt as the administrator, I was able to access the disk and clean it. Once this was done, the disk was placed into an unallocated status. Going back to disk management I was able to initialize the disk and assign it a drive letter (H).

    Thank you to all who tried to assist me with this problem.
    Just to let all of the nay-sayers know that I have transferred over to the Windows 11 forum. Before issuing my initial posting, I had assumed that this forum was established to help those with problems. I got the help that was needed from someone who told me about Windows 11 and have since moved over to that forum. Hopefully, I will see some of you there and may be able to offer some assistance to you.
    As NavyLCDR stated, isn't that what these forums is all about.

    I think you'll find most of us are there too

    This particular problem and its solution is the same in Vista/W7/W8/W10/W11, so any forum would have done, 10F and 11F are the most active though.
