    can't delete partition

    I am in Computer Management.
    I am the owner of the volume, there is no sharing, the partition is empty, but "access is denied", and I can't delete it.
    I tried reformatting, it did not solve the problem. I also tried stopping the reformat in the middle, so it shows as raw data, but I still cannot delete it.
    This is not the system partition. I used it until now to store VMs.

    UPDATE: I checked the security tab again, and ownership reverted to system. This has happened more than once.
    What's going on here?

    my bad.
    It was because of Rollback Rx. I uninstalled and everything worked perfectly. This simply slipped my mind.
