What is wpsystem - lasting solutions

What is the folder WpSystem?

I am pretty sure it is similar to the Android folder on Android phones that has app data and is linked to the Play Store. My memory card from my old Lumia has WPSystem folder on it and had files and folders with app names. Looks like it is linked to the Windows Store. 3.

- If this is what your desktop looks like, you and I need to talk. And even if you don't, you will want to stick with this article because remember when I said my paper file organization article was the most exciting article you have ever seen? That’s a thing of the past because everyone knows that the transition from analog to digital everything gets cooler, so buckle up again because this week is all about organizing and systemizing the files in your computer. Organizing your computer files is both easier and more difficult than organizing your real-world paper files.

It's easier because computer files don't weigh anything, they don't take up physical space so they can't really clutter up your desk in your living space. But it's harder number one because well, we were never taught how to organize computer files. I don't know about you, but I remember going to elementary school, middle school and had teachers, I'm going to put things in separate folders, have a trapper keeper, all that stuff.

But when it came to my computer files, there was never anyone around to teach me how to organize my folder structure, where to store things, anything and secondly, we create a lot more on the computer today than in the real world. We have so many different documents, pictures, music files that it can get out of hand much faster than in the real world, which is why I think it's critical to create a usable logical structure with your computer files from the start This is much more important than paper files because in the real world there just aren't any - you don't have to reorganize a lot when you find you've wreaked havoc. But if your computer is a mess, you might have hundreds of files on your desktop, making it easy to find what you need quickly.

And there is a coup here, different rules apply. Number one, every single file on your system should be in a folder that represents it well, a specific folder. Nothing should be on the desktop and nothing should be in random folders like documents or downloads.

Everything should be in something meaningful. But second, you want to have a structure that makes it easy to find these folders on your own. Now, you could just have a long list of folders at some level of your system, but that will make things pretty awkward, pretty quickly.

Instead, you want to follow the steps of the great philosopher King Xzibit and start putting folders inside folders. I call this a tree structure. When you think of a tree below, you have the trunk, and then that trunk eventually branches into main branches, which in turn branch into smaller branches.

And this splitting process goes on and on until you reach the leaves. And indeed, if you look closely at a leaf, you will find that the branching process continues even as the vein splits off from the midrib. Bet you didn't think you were getting tree anatomy in this article, did you? And if you look elsewhere, you will find that the structure is replicated in both nature and man-made systems.

Take your body's circulatory system, for example, all blood flows from the heart through the arteries. From there, however, it splits into smaller and smaller blood vessels until it finally reaches the smallest of them, the capillaries, and is transported to exactly the right place in the body. And the road systems are very similar.

Any two points in a city that The best way to achieve this is to first drive onto a freeway or freeway or main road and then branch off into smaller and smaller residential streets. Branched paths of trees, blood vessels, and road systems provide the most efficient way of moving resources; a tree structure provides the most efficient and easiest way to organize your files You will want to create this tree structure that starts with what is called the root. Essentially the trunk of the tree.

And in my filesystem that I'm going to show you as an example for the rest of this article, the root is called Google Drive, and the reason for that is that I'm using Google Drive, which recently changed its name to Google One, to all of them syncing my files with the cloud and between all my different computers, but we'll talk about that a little later. Within the root directory, I think it makes the most sense to organize your main files by the main categories of your life, or as I like to call them life buckets. So the buckets of my life include college, college info geek, study, for study projects, my life, these are all my personal files like taxes and housing records, etc.

Now let me point out that this is not the only way to get yours Organizing file tree this is something that could be repeated for each individual level of the file tree If you take a look at the datacurator filetree project on GitHub, you'll find that the top level of the suggested file tree actually contains folders sorted by media type, audio files, Documents, literature, article, etc. There is no document in a specific media folder in my file system. And that brings me to the main point here.

Your filesystem should be extensible, it should be flexible, it should maintain its logic as it expands. All in all, it should represent the way your brain organizes files. For example, suppose you are the only person using this folder because I know a lot of you go into the professional world, work in companies, and use shared directories.

Your own filesystem allows you to query your brain a little more frequently, but with directories shared, you probably want to adhere to some agreed rules and conventions. I just want to go over a few of them here one is Organize by Category, which is exactly what I do in this main folder, in my file tree, and it's the structure I keep for most of the subfolders as well. To give an example, let's go to my College Info Geek folder.

This is where basically all of the files related to my business are stored, be it LLC paperwork or the thumbnail for this article. So as soon as we drill into this folder we will see some folders like Business, Content, Courses, Projects, Speaking and Tools. And in the content folder, to go a little deeper, we will see other folders like Articles, Email List, Graphics , Watch podcasts and articles.

And with that structure, it's easy to find pretty much anything I really need. really fast. And just to give you an example, I'm throwing the path of a random file onto the screen here so you can see the logical sequence of steps I would take to get there.

And again, it's very easy to find this file and pretty much everything else. That being said, organizing by category isn't the only way to organize your files. And you get into certain sub-folders where it makes sense to use a different structure, e.g.

B. Organize by date. And I find this particular structure very useful when the files I'm trying to organize would fill up so many different category-based folders that would result in a huge long list.

And my college classes are a great example. During my college career I have taken over 40 different classes. And well, I could just slide every single class folder into my college folder, that would be pretty messy, I'd go through a list of 40 different folders every time I had to save or open a file.

And most importantly, during each and every semester, I would go into that college folder and see a bunch of very irrelevant folders from previous semesters. Instead of just organizing by categories, I instead created a different level of organization by dividing things up by years. So I have freshman, sophomore, junior and senior.

Sop Homore, we're going to see all of the courses I took during my sophomore year. Then when we drill into class-based folders like English 313 we see all the files related to that class, but also project-specific, so if you have a project but a lot of different files, I think it makes perfect sense to put these files in to group them in their own folder. But everything that is like an individual handout for the class, just keep it in the class folder. and you will find it easily as long as you name it intelligently.

And when we talk about naming your files, that's actually the second step in this process, which is frankly an on-going process because you will always be naming files, but I want to talk a little bit about how you should name your files. And we don't need to talk much here, because the main principle is that your files should be named relatively precisely, you should know at a glance what it means within the context of its location in your files tree. And I bring this point to your attention, because there are many other productivity and organizational gurus out there who have these overly complex file naming conventions.

They put the date in their filenames, they put in any context they can. And honestly, I think this is a waste of time because as long as you pay close attention to where you store your files on your filesystem, each file really just needs a little bit of specificity so that you know what it is at a glance. So, of course, don't give your homework a name, just homework.docx or paper.docx.

Give it a name that will at least bring your memory of what it should be, but don't worry about being too specific either. And that brings us to step three in the process I referred to earlier in the article, I think you should definitely be using a cloud sync app, like Google One Slash Google Drive as the root of your file tree. So if you don't know what a cloud sync is? app is basically an app like Dropbox, Google One, Microsoft One Drive, iCloud Drive, there are several others out there as well.

You basically sit on your computer and upload everything from the sync folder to the cloud and then sync it with other computers that you have as well. And with an app this way you have several advantages. Number one: All of your files are kept up to date throughout your system.

So when you make a change to a Photoshop document or a Word document on one computer, that change is dutifully synced to the cloud, and to every other computer you have. Second, you can access your files wherever you are. You have access to your laptop, you have access to your phone, I'm just reading the script for this article of that bone, you even have access to any computer in the world as long as you sign in to your Google or Dropbox account and these files can download.

That brings us to a question: which cloud sync app should you be using, which is the best? Well I'll go ahead and recommend Google One for f or most people. Now there are a lot of competitors out there again, Microsoft One Drive, Box, Sync Dropbox, iCloud Drive, but I think Google One makes the most sense, number one because they give you 15 gigabytes of free space, which is way more than with every other competitor. And I think if you're not a content creator, photographer, or graphic designer, it will take you a long time to fill the 15 gigabytes of free space.

So this is what stops you from spending a ton of money right up front. Second, with a competitor like Dropbox, if you need more space, you have to switch immediately to their two terabyte plan for $ 10 a month. With Google One or Google Drive or whatever you want to call it, it's only $ 2 a month for 100 gigabytes.

And again, I really don't think most people need much more than 100 gigabytes. But what you need, no matter who you are, even if you don't, you'll need a ton of extra storage space to make sure your files are adequately backed up and secured. Well, if you're using a cloud sync app like Google One, then you have some protection from hard drive failure on one computer, so if I have all of my files only on that one computer, just hard drive, not synced with Google One or something, and that goes down the toilet, well, that fits probably not in the toilet, but someone is trying to force it into the toilet or someone steals it, or Loki comes out of a portal and casts a spell on it, he gets it on its feet and runs away from me, right? I would lose all files because they are only on this hard drive.

But when they're synced to the cloud I lose everything when this thing runs away and goes to scared kids is the hardware itself. And this computer can be replaced with money, but all of these files cannot be replaced. So at least with the Cloud Sync app you have some protection from Hardware Aga failure.

But what you have no protection from is people who are malicious. If someone walks in and likes it deletes your Google account and deletes all of those files, then you have You don't have much protection from it. With Google One and many cloud sync apps, you can now go back in time and restore files from the Recycle Bin.Usually, you have a 30 day time limit to do this.

But even here someone could go in and empty the trash. Or you could accidentally change a file and don't realize it until a month later and realize, oh, well, I needed the old version of that file, and now it's gone forever. I think you should have a backup strategy that goes beyond cloud sync.

And there are a couple of different options. So the option that I personally use and that I recommend for most people is to use a separate cloud backup app like Backblaze or CrashPlan. And I'm going to be using Backblaze here because it's the one I use, but for around $ 5 a month or $ 60 a year they back up an unlimited amount of data backup on your computer across any attached hard drive other than g like Network attached storage.

But the other is that it offers some level of redundancy. If something gets into your Google Drive and messes it up, or someone deletes all of these files, they get backed up too and Backblaze I want my data in several different places. This is kind of a thrill, but if one of those data silos ever collapses, you'll be very glad you took the precautions and backed up.

The other option, which I think is a little less robust than a good cloud backup, but it's still useful to just get a small external hard drive, plug it in once a month and copy your data to that one hard drive and Then and just leave it disconnected from the computer, keep it in a secret and safe place. And then actually remember to plug it back in and take a backup once a month. And that brings us to the final step in the process, using shortcuts to more quickly access the most frequently used folders and files on your system.

Because here's the thing, when you have this nicely organized tree structure, sometimes you have files that are six, seven, eight levels down from the root directory. And if you need to access these files frequently, you'll be clicking through eight different levels of folders, and it's not very efficient. Fortunately, computers can be used to create shortcuts or aliases.

These are interchangeable terms for quick access to these files. But in my opinion even more efficient than shortcuts are the quick access and favorites areas of the Finder and Explore on both Mac and Windows. Windows is called Quick Access, you can simply pin any folder or file to it in the sidebar.

And in Mac OS it's called favorites. and it gives you exactly the same functionality, so if you see my explorer here you will see that I have pinned a lot of different folders that I access regularly, some are there permanently, but you will also see folders referring to them refer to the individual article t that I am currently working on. So right now you're looking at 172 Computer File Organizations, since that's the article I'm working on right now.

So, use Quick Access, start using favorites, create shortcuts, and you will be able to navigate your file tree much faster. And as long as you maintain the integrity of that file tree, as long as you remain vigilant about saving new files and creating new folders, you will never lose a file again and be so much better organized. Of course, the best way to stay organized is to think very carefully about the projects you are taking on, the files you are creating, the content you are consuming, to be called an essentialist.

It involves being very much in tune with your priorities and your values ​​in life. And if you want to get better at it, I have a book recommendation for you. Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less by Greg McKeown is one of my all-time favorite self-improvement books, it is one of the most useful that I have found in my personal experience.

And if you really want to hear this book for free, you can do so by going to audible.com/thomasor by contacting Thomas at 500. write -500 on your phone.

When you do, you get a free 30-day trial of the Audible service that comes with a free audiobook download that can be anything you want. But of course I will recommend 'Essentialism'. But it also comes with two Audible originals that you can't get anywhere else, along with tons of audio workout, fitness, yoga, and meditation programs.

And of course, Audible is the best place on the internet to get your hands on audiobooks. They have an unmatched library of all the bestsellers, loads of obscure stuff, and things from virtually every genre you could want. And they also have a well-designed app with lots of great features including sleep timer so you can use it at night, the ability to add notes to specific timestamps in your book, and easy controls to skip forward or backward just in case that you want to fast forward or if you haven't caught something, you can just go back and listen to it again.

So if you want to get another 30-day free trial of the Audible service, it comes with a free audiobook download, two Audible originals you can't get anywhere else, and all of those audio workout meditation programs, go to audible.com/thomas and sign in or text Thomas to 500-500 on your phone Audible always goes out because she sponsored this article and is a huge supporter of my channel.

What is WpSystem on USB?

WpSystem isn't a default folder. It was created by a user on the machine and likely used by an application installed by a user on the machine. ... Every SD card/USB I plug in, a 'WPSystem' folder is created at the root. Google seems to think it's to do with Windows Phone. REDDIT and the ALIEN Logo are.

Is it safe to delete WindowsApps folder?

WindowsApps folder is a protected folder on the system. We do not recommend to remove it since it will affect the applications installed on your computer.

- So here is a situation. You've been concerned about or lack of privacy in Windows 10 for a while, but while you've tried Linux, you just can't make the leap. Maybe some software you need isn't running properly, or maybe you're just a fan of Windows, other than privacy issues.

What can you do? Why not improve it? Yes, my friends, you can completely fix the problems with Windows 10 and remove the unnecessary junk that weighs on it all by yourself. So let's see how it's done and what it costs. But first, let's see how much our sponsor costs.

GlassWire is the tool that shows you in real time which apps are slowing down your connection. It is used by security professionals to monitor for malware, block wasted bandwidth, and detect suspicious activity. Get 25% off with the offer code Linus at the link below. (Upbeat music) What does improve in any way? Well, according to the dictionary it is a verb that means to make something bad or unsatisfactory better, and that certainly seems to be the goal of Win. to be dows 10 Ameliorated edition, a small project that has been around since 2017.

Not much information is now available on who is actually behind this, but some old links point to Actrons, a '90s kid who specifically names Outtechnology. Social sciences, philosophy, psychology and neurology, film and anime analysis and shudder as topics of interest. The improved edition appears to be an offshoot of their Windows 10 install script that originally almost disabled things like Windows Update and made adjustments to Windows Explorer, but Windows builds came out with more deeply integrated telemetry, so a more direct approach was needed to keep Windows away to call home bloody and get all my information.

The improved edition removes Windows Update, Cortana, Activation, Microsoft Edge, Windows Media Player, and all. appx UWP applications from the installation, not deactivated, removed, no longer available. This means that the overall size is reduced.

Removing such ingrained components naturally requires the introduction of replacements in certain cases. Killing Cortana, for example, cripples the Start menu and Windows Search in particular. So Classic Shell is used as a replacement, so you'll have to give up too.

DirectX 12 may not be fully supported as Windows Update is out of the question, and of course you're stuck with no automatic updates. In fact, the update process itself is a bit tedious, requiring you to disconnect from the internet, temporarily reactivate Windows Update, and so on and so on. Suffice it to say that while this version of Windows is focused on privacy, it is a little less focused on security.

The last one the site claims, most of the exploitable apps have been removed anyway, so this point may be less important than you might think. But enough talk. Why don't we look for ourselves and see what else we are giving up in the name of improved privacy? Is that gone, is Windows Mail.

Who uses Windows Mail? How crazy do you have to be not to just use a web browser to check your email? All right Boomer, enjoy your Outlook So no Windows Mail, no Windows Store, and no Microsoft Edge, all we have down here is File Explorer, that's it. In fact, I'm now also noticing a few other changes. Where are all the drop-down lists for File Explorer? That feels like it's going to be very, very different.

We also have the classic Start menu in Windows Vista and 7 -Style. And of course, because there's no Edge, Anthony helpfully thrown a Firefox shortcut on the desktop. - The default is DuckDuckGo, really? - Yes. - Is this the Firefox standard or the improved Windows 10 edition? - No, this is an improved edition.

Actually Firefox and Thunderbird. - ONLYOFFICE. - What? ONLYOFFICE and VLC media player were all preinstalled by the operating system - I've never heard of ONLYOFFICE - Apparently it's a junction from LibreOffice - Ha, it looks a lot like Microsoft Office.

Let's try and find some tech tips here. Tech tips from Linus. What's my Amazon page? This is a used TITAN X.

Okay, we need to update that. Colton! - I'm here, what's up? - Oh wow are you there? (Laughing man) That was so cool. Can I summon people just by saying their name? lttstore.com.

Hey, that's a cute shirt by the way, guys. Okay what more can we try here? Okay, where is my file? Dropdown? - This is a modification of Windows Explorer called Old Explorer that restores the Windows 7 style of Windows Explorer. So it doesn't have the traditional ribbon.

It has none of the other things. It's just all basically rewritten. And there is actually a configuration file that you can modify to customize it yourself.

I used them for a while just out of curiosity, but they used it here because some of the changes they made to Windows also affected Explorer. So they had to use the Old Explorer to fix it somehow.- Well, I can tell you now that I only have one thing I would take care of, that they fix it and that is when I'm looking for something and to this folder go when I click folder, you bastards! That's not what i want I want it to go up in a folder.

If I want it to go back to the previous page, I'd hit back. Folder up means a folder up in the directory structure. So this looks like the terrible Windows 10 type of settings menu, except there's even less stuff here, a lot of it has to do with the telemetry stuff, so Windows updates, games like the Xbox stuff, the telemetry stuff and the Calling home was connected.

Pretty much anything that comes into question would also be deleted - can I? even set a screen saver? - I think so. It shows up, right? - I don't know, right? Wait, here it is, here it is, I have it, I have it. So you can't look for it.

I think that's probably because they sorted out the regular search as well. - Yes, without Cortana, Windows Search somehow dies .- Ha, I actually didn't know that this bubble screen saver was still built into Windows.

This is a Windows Vista classic here. That was so cool back then. Ooh, 3D acceleration on the desktop! Now it looks kind of fake actually, I just want to watch these bubbles for days - We have evolved beyond screensavers as a species at this point - that's weird too, the Windows tab doesn't go through things for some reason.

All the tabs do, but why not Windows tab? Okay, that's cool. I think that's fine - I didn't really benchmark - Okay. - But it seems a lot faster than a standard Windows 10 installation should be. - I mean, the start menu pops up instantly, which is pretty nice.

But I mean how bad is this search? So let's look for Counterstrike. That's gross. Not being able to find something that is literally a shortcut on the desktop is awful.

No worse than the one built into Windows 10. - I think it is possible to set the search folders for a classic shell or it is now called Open Shell. So if you right click on the Start menu and go to Settings you can configure everything there, but by default it isn't set up for that in my opinion.

It's just for the start menu itself. - Got it, okay. Search the internet, look for programs and settings, look for files.

It's set to search everything, sir.- Oh. Well then I did I don't apologize for that.

So what more can we try here? I mean, a game is going to be fine, right? Let's play Doom - I mean Doom should be running - There is a default password, why should that be? - Because the user account you are currently logged in with is directly a user. It's not an administrator - Why? - You are no longer receiving the security patches - Right - Most security vulnerabilities happen because users are administrators. - Right, and there's really no compelling reason to be an administrator other than just installing programs.

And if you know the admin password, you can always enter it if you want to, like you would on a Mac.- Yes.- I should just switch to Mac.Between Spotlight, and just, Finder wasn't that bad.

Me would consider it.- There are alternatives you can get.Path Finder is one.- Okay.- It's paid software, but it's actually pretty decent.- Why is everything paid for on Mac? - Yes.- Because you can afford it, you bought a Mac.

Okay, yeah, we're running at 90 FPS or whatever. -Yes, it's perfectly fine.-Ultra-Nightmare.

Take the monsters. -Why don't you try a DirectX 12 game? probably won't work then hey. Okay what the --- it could be.

I got a shot from the Tomb Raider. -Oh yeah, it will. Oh, weird, there's no popup in the system tray -up.- This could just be an artifact from Classic Shell.

I'm not entirely sure. It's been a hot minute, but it could also be that we don't have any hidden icons. - I can't find a way to hide them.

I'm in the settings now and it's just, no, you just move them. Even the moving animations are a little different. So you might be right.

It could just be a classic shell thing. Let's play some shadow play from Tomb Raider, DirectX 12. Here we go boys.

Why should Windows Update affect this? - Apparently there are extensions for DirectX 12 that come down from Windows Update from time to time. So the idea is, if you have a game that has an extension that you don't have, DirectX 12 just isn't working properly - Well, Shadow of the Tomb Raider is a bit of an older game and it seems to be working right at least in the menu what is being rendered in the engine so i would believe it will run. OK.

So officially DirectX 12 is a no-go, but unofficially, if you try it game to game it might actually work fine then.- Yes.- You shouldn't be here, but I like it.

New task manager is here. That's nice to see. Got your GPU usage and all that good stuff, although I don't see temps here so that's at least one iteration back - It's actually based on Windows 10 1903 - Got it - By 1909 it should be possible, but the official pictures are 1903.

Okay, you might then notice in the lower right corner that you have an icon to connect to the internet wizard.- Oh, I am.- Yes and that is --- That's because Windows don't know can that I have an internet connection.- Correct, because it is not able to call home, it cannot.- Understood.- So it only knows that you have local connectivity.- Interesting.Although all telemetry stuff is supposed to be removed, we're still up to date I have to fool Windows that it has no reason to use it because I don't have an internet connection - Yes - Oh, Creative Cloud probably won't know, I also have an internet connection - Yeah - Oh, I bet it wi rd give a lot of stuff that goes down because it thinks you don't have an internet connection - because they can't ping their server.

You can't call home - so it turns off telemetry for other applications too - I think Adobe is one of those applications that hooks into the Windows API for this, and the API itself has been removed. - I opened the Creative Cloud desktop. A new version is available.

Go ahead and update. Let's see if it gets her. Let's see if you can get a water bottle on lttstore.com.

Okay, this won't end. It's been sitting here for ages now - I take back everything I said about high quality Adobe software. - Okay, with that we have svchost, like the task manager.

Wow, there really isn't much in there - yes, and in keeping with the spirit of the OS, I also used NVCleanstall to install the NVIDIA driver. So we only have the bare minimum for that, too. - Oh, I think that explains why it feels so fast.

As you know, sometimes even on a fast computer you open local hard drive C and it takes about 10 or 15 seconds for no apparent reason. It needs to update like a log in the background, that needs to go - Exactly. - On Microsoft and all that crap.

You wonder how much stuff is actually encrusted in the vanilla version of Windows. - No kidding, like even if it takes a second to open and fill a directory listing, it takes a second, not 10 seconds.- Yes, accessing the vault or one of our other servers usually takes that long.- One long time.

That's great though I'm in the bank right now and it's responsive enough considering it runs on spinning g over a gigabit connection - yes - hey, MS Paint is still there - MS Paint is none Spyware.- I knew I knew you were good all along. That's pretty cool would be from an officially available, scaled-down version of Windows like an embedded version that we actually talked about when we made a article about Windows 9, and more since all of the telemetry is gone.

But from a legal point of view, this is all a gray area, so to speak. According to the website, the project is now perfectly legal, based on EU Directive 2009/24, which gives you a tailor-made interoperability base by downloading images with telemetry, including activation, from the website itself, even though you are essentially pirating. However, it is legally possible to do so if you modify a Windows image for yourself, and they have full documentation of the process, as well as a repository of open source scripts that they license and a Windows 10 1909 download should do on their own although the pre-made images are all based on 1903.

Legality aside, the utility of a Windows image like this one is pretty great for someone who wants to run it in a VM on a Linux machine for example. For everyday use I don't know. If you don't need some of the things of those we've found they don't quite work properly, and if you don't mind jumping through some hoops trying to update or run something that requires administrative permissions, then frankly, our better recommendations are just to give in and run Windows or just run Linux if you want privacy without a hitch.

How do I remove Modifiablewindowsapps folder?

Boot into safe mode, remove the offending folders, then reboot. It looks like it might be a folder installed if you've installed any Microsoft games. I would rename it before deleting it though, and make sure everything works before deleting it.

Today we are going to delete hard drive partitions in Windows 10 that appear to be indelible. These partitions can sometimes be referred to as recovery partitions or OEM partitions, but they all have one thing in common: they are again protected so that certain tools in Windows cannot delete them. The symptom is obvious when you look at a hard drive in Windows Disk Management utility.

To start the utility, just right click the Windows button and choose Disk Management. Let me slip this over so I can show you in this corner of the desktop. We have two hard drives labeled 0 and 1.

The partitions I want to delete are on hard drive 0 which shows five partitions. If I right click on one of these options, you'll see what options are available in the context menu. On this first partition, Delete Volume is obviously grayed out.

In fact, the option to delete doesn't even show up when I right click on the following. The second, third and fourth partitions only have one choice. The fifth actually gives me the option to delete it, so that's what I'll do.

Note that this is not my current Windows startup partition, which is on disk 1. This is actually an old Windows hard drive that I want to erase so I can use it as a secondary storage drive. She will complain that it is already in use, but I can go ahead and delete it because it is just a copy of Windows.

In a previously published article, I showed you how to clone hard drive to bootable SSD drive using Windows. I just delete the partitions from the hard drive so I can use them as secondary storage. That gives us four partitions left that Disk Management cannot delete.

The solution is to use a built-in command line utility in Windows called diskpart. Let's go to our search bar and type in 'cmd' which the command prompt returns. I'll right click on it and run it as an administrator.

Let me move this up a bit so we can see what is happening graphically in the DiskManagement screen. The first thing to do is run diskpart, written d-i-s-k-p-a-r-t. It's a command line utility for disk partition, and by typing 'list disk' and then typing we get a list of all the physical drives in the computer.

You can see that disk 0 and 1 correspond to the same 0 and 1 in Disk Management. We now need to select the hard drive that contains the partitions that we want to delete. Since the command line has no graphical interface, we need to type 'select disk 0' to select it.

When I list the hard drive again, you'll see an asterisk next to hard drive 0, indicating that it's selected and we're ready to perform an operation on it. Now let's list the partitions on this hard drive by typing 'listpartition'. You can see that we listed five partitions even though DiskManagement only shows four.

Partition 2 is missing, which means that not only is it not erasable, but it is also hidden in Disk Management. It's a small reserved partition that Windows creates, but I want to delete that too. Again, just like we selected a hard drive, we need to select a partition.

If you list the partitions again, you will see the selection with an asterisk. There is an abbreviation for the word 'partition'. I can type in 'list part' and that is the same as 'list partition' so from this point on I use 'part' instead of 'partition'.

After partition 1 is selected, we need to delete it. I just type in 'delete part' and hit enter. However, since it is a protected partition, deletion will fail.

What we need to do is type 'delete part' and then add the 'overwrite' argument and hit enter - and that will actually delete the partition. We can confirm this in Disk Management where the first partition is now unallocated. Let's list the partitions again and find that Partition 1 is now gone.

Let's select part 2 and try to delete it with 'Delete Part'. Again it fails because it is protected so I have to type in 'delete part override'. Now it's just a matter of selecting the remaining partitions with the override flag and deleting them.

Let's 'Select Part 3' and 'Delete Partial Override'. Select the fourth and delete it. And finally 'Select Part 5' and delete the partition.

Now if I list my partitions, they are all gone. When we go to Disk Management you will find that it is not responding because it doesn't like us trying to delete something from another process. So I have to quit the application, force it to close, and then restart Disk Management.

You can see that Disk 0 is now free of all partitions, with unallocated space all over the hard drive. At this point I can create my own volumes and partitions and format topics that I normally would. Hope you enjoyed it - thanks for watching!
