    I believe the correct command for what you where trying to do is >

    format override quick fs=ntfs label="WIN_OS"

    I think my drive is locked from alteration. Even after a successful delete partition, it says no sufficient space when I attempt a create new primary partition.

    I noticed it earlier also. When I deleted 10 Gb of data, it came back after I rebooted. Wondering.. Snap below for the list of commands I tried.

    1 interesting find.

    I just gave

    format override fs=ntfs label="WIN_OS" and the percent count is increasing. Though the wipe is slow, I will wait and update on the outcome.

    I attempted. But it did not have an impact.

    The contents came back even after clean. But now the format without the quick is working.

    No progress.

    When I removed quick, it ran till 100% and then the same error came. "Diskpart encountered an error. Parameter is incorrect"

    When I use, format quick fs=ntfs label="WIN_OS"

    It says, Virtual disk service error: The device is in use. The selected volume or partition is in use. Use Override parameter

    the latest update is that, none of the format methods are working. Looks like the hard drive got locked.

    I am attempting the same wipe through new WIn 10 bootable drive and let us see if it works there. Thanks for your patience so far.
