To delete a partition

  • Performing the following steps will destroy all data on the selected partition and may change drive letter assignments.

    1. Select a disk and a partition.
    2. Click Partition > Delete.
    3. Click Delete or Delete and Secure Erase.
    4. Click OK.

    1. To delete an extended partition, you must first delete all logical partitions within the extended partition.
    2. In step 3, you can also right-click the partition you want to delete, then click Delete. You should be aware that using the Delete and Secure Erase option takes much longer than simply deleting a partition.
    3. To delete or securely erase an extended partition, you must first delete all logical partitions within the extended partition. You cannot securely erase unallocated space.
    4. PowerQuest recommends running DriveMapper when you are prompted. Deleting a partition can make your drive letters change, causing applications not to run because application shortcuts, initialization files, and registry entries refer to incorrect drives. DriveMapper, a utility included with PartitionMagic, helps you easily update drive letter references. Under some conditions, DriveMapper runs automatically after you delete a partition.
    5. If your system includes SCSI disks and you delete a partition before a bootable Linux partition, Linux may no longer be bootable. If this happens, you will need to create Linux rescue disks, boot from the rescue disks, and repair the Linux boot information on the Linux partition.
