Windows 10: W10 Diskpart/disk list

    W10 Diskpart/disk list

    Hi to all and thank you to Spunk and Navy LCDR - Issue almost resolved from your help.

    I have just installed, in my notebook an old SSD EVO 850 Samsung as a 'second' separate SSD to use for a back-up.

    When I try to use Diskpart to clean this SSD I encounter a hitch. After bringing up diskpart, I type 'disk list' and enter, but instead of the list of my disks being displayed, a long list of options' titles available from A - Z is shown.

    How do I get to see the list of my disks ( 2 of them)? I see from others on line that entering 'disk list' does show the list of disks in their machine.

    Guidance over this obstacle would be welcome.

    Best wishes

    Diskpart/ disk list = list disk

    Hi. Fafhrd and Samuria

    Many thanks for your response. Can I blame the 'rorre' on a temporary blip of dislexia?

    The disk is no set up as reserve storage.

    All best wishes
