    Cannot Use Unallocated Drive Space After Ubuntu Deletion.

    I cannot use this unallocated space for creating a new drive or expanding an existing one.
    This thread will give you the history.

    You appear to have good answers there.

    But it is unclear how or why an attempt to create a new partition out of that space fails, if indeed that's what you wish to do.
    When I try doing anything with windows Disk Management I get a message saying there is not enough space.
    I also tried using easus disk management but it does not show any options for the unallocated space.
    I have tried expanding E drive in bothsoft ware but again there is a no space error in Windows Disk Management and EASUS does not show the unallocated space as free space.
    Is there any way to format the unallocated area?
    Please detail the steps you have tried to create a new partition, and post a screenshot showing how this fails.

    Here I rt clicked on the unallocated space, then clicked Create New Simple Volume.
    Could you please post what you see?
    to post a screenshot please use the Insert Image icon to the left of the video icon above your post.

    It should be perfectly possible to create a new partition from within Windows. If you can't, boot your PC using Kyhi's boot disk available from the top of the Software and Apps section here, and run Minitool Partition Wizard - on that disk.

    That should bypass any restrictions imposed by Windows. If there are any, that is.
