Windows 10: How do I re-formate this Sata Drive to one partition ?
How do I re-formate this Sata Drive to one partition ?
Per the attached jpg...I am trying to reformat this WD Sata drive into one single partition. I believe this drive used to hold a Win 7 Pro 64 bit installation prior to moving to Win 10 on a new Sata drive. Initially I had a dual boot setup but decided to erase/delete the Win 7 Pro system. I think I deleted the Win 7 installation/drive on this WD drive.
I can't figure out via Properties and/or disk management how to reformat the drive into a single partition so I can keep my backup files on this drive for the Win 10 installation on a different Sata HDD drive
Must be doing something out of order but can't find a screen to erase the 2 partitions and reformat the drive to a blank single partition data drive to store Win 10 backup files on ?

Right click on the box where Disk 2 is displayed and select Offline. Once the disk is offline you should be able to Delete the Volumes on the disk then create a new Simple Volume.

I have one of those newfangled SATA-to-USB adapters for internal hard drives.

When I download my free version of Windows 10, I want to install it to my 128gb SATA drive which is now labeled Drive S, and keep my current installation of Win 7 Ultimate on drive C in case I want to revert back to Win 7.
