I had a old laptop running on Windows Xp, recently bought a brand new Dell laptop which came pre-installed with Vista. There were several problems in my older laptop hence i though to kill it and removed it hard drive to use it as an external USB drive. Now the problem is when i connect the same with Vista as an external drive, i can see it in Disk Management but when i try to format the same, it gives me an error message saying:
"The operation failed to complete because the Disk Management console view is not up-to-date. Refresh the view by using the refresh task. If the problem persists, close the Disk Management console, then restart Disk Management or restart the computer."
Tried searching web for some working solution but dint found any. Can anyone here why is that error appearing and how can i format the drive? Many thanks.
