Windows 10: My Disk management - Sure doesn't look right to me ??
Ok...having an issue assigning the new location with the newly copied Reserve partition (now Disk 1 - 1st in order - in MT Wizard attached
Getting the following error in administrator CMD screen:
C:\WINDOWS\system32>reagentc /setreimage /path \\?\GLOBALROOT\device\harddisk0\partition1\Recovery\WindowsRE
REAGENTC.EXE: The Windows RE image cannot be stored in the specified volume. Use the RETAIN command in DISKPART to prepare the volume and try again.
My guess is wrong parameters in my CMD command ???

Reason: added graphic
Thanks for the syntax details, NavyLCDR. A good example is worth a lot.
Open Command Prompt (admin). Run:
select <disk number> - probably going to be zero - you want the disk number of the physical drive we are working on.
select part <partition number> - the partition number of what should be the recovery partition - probably going to be 1
Then try the reagentc command again.

DiskPart successfully set the partition ID.
a good partition manager is important. used minitool, now easeus partition master.
Well got things moved around but now I'm stuck...again. What do I need in the command to change the Recovery to position 1 - and how do I rename position from 'Data Partition' back to 'Recovery Partition' ?
Have not successfully used the following command so far to set Recovery partition to 1
reagentc /setreimage /path \\?\GLOBALROOT\device\harddisk0\partition1\Recovery\WindowsRE
What do I have to modify in the above command that will be a valid/accurate command to run in CMD

File Explorer select the G: drive, right click and select Properties, change the name to what you desire.
Disk Management might be used to remove the drive letter: Choose the drive which you want to hide and right click on it. Choose 'Change Letter and Paths' and click on Remove button.
If no drive letter is displayed for the partition in Disk Management then perform a full shutdown of the computer by admin command prompt type shutdown -r -t 0
Same answer as before...
After reinstalling win10 i noticed that i have a drive that takes up a letter and it doesn't appear in disk management, so i can't change it's letter to something like Z: and hide it. It's nothing major but I'd just like F: to be the letter...
I have a internal 3.5" HDD WD Black 2 TB and try to hook it up in the PC but it doesnt not appear anymore in My Computer. It was working few weeks ago. When opening Disk Management it says the disk is not initialized and it didnt state how many GB...
hello i was wondering if anyone could help me with my problem.
i have a msi laptop and since the 1511 update i now have partitions that where not there before hand.
i can not delete these partitions and was wondering if anyone else has this...
I just installed Win 10. First impression is that I'm not impressed with the new design. I think mobile devices are ruining the internet.
How do I get to disk management? Is it similar to Win 7?
Also, how do I get to Services and Event Viewer?
I was looking in Disk management in Win 8.1 and under the "action tab", there is a choice to;
I can't get a shot of it to show a snip.
Has anyone used this ? Would this be safe to install Win 10 with ?
