Re: How to Delete a Partition in Windows 7

First, let you know that you cannot erase any partition containing virtual memory paging file because the Operating System needs this information for it to start correctly. And remember, All data will be erased from the Partition or Volume you want to delete, so be careful what are going to do.Just folloe this steps to delete a partition from Windows 7:-

1. First get logged in as an Administrator.

2. Right click on the Computer icon on the Desktop and select Manage option

3. In the Computer Management window click to expand:
Computer Management (Local)\Storage\Disk Management folder in the left pane

4. Now right click on the Partition or Volume you want to delete and select "Delete Volume" option in the middle pane.

5. You will be asked to confirm. Click Yes to delete the Partition or No to decline.

6. The Partition will now be deleted. Close the Computer Management window.

7. Better you restart the computer.

Thats it.. you are done !!

Re: How to Delete a Partition in Windows 7

You can try this as well to do so:-

1. Type diskpart in the elevated command prompt and press Enter.

2. In the elevated command prompt, type list volume and press Enter.This will give you a list of volume numbers to select from to delete.

3. In the elevated command prompt, type select volume # and press Enter.You would substitute # for the volume number listed that you want to delete.

4. In the elevated command prompt, type delete volume and press Enter.

5. In the elevated command prompt, type exit and press Enter.

6. Close the elevated command prompt.The selected partition is now deleted and is now unallocated space. You can use this unallocated space to create a new partition with, or extend another partition on that same hard disk into it.
