I recently bought a 128GB USB drive, on which I'd like to make 4 partitions, but when I use Disk Management (Windows) and try to edit the main partition, the items in the list when right-clicked are disabled, so I can't edit the main partition. (see list on image below.)
When I use GParted (Linux) I can make the desired partitions and sizes. But Windows doesn't seem to like that: in Disk Management I can see all my partitions, but with no information displayed. Also right-clicking the partitions results in disabled functions and giving errors when asked to view the properties of that partition or to format it (see image). The error says that I have to reboot my PC in order to view the desired properties or to format it. Linux does seem to allow these partitions, which are functioning perfectly.
My last guess was using DISKPART, which was also no good. Also when running
LIST PARTITION on my USB drive, the first partition, which Windows can read, is called
Partition 1, but the other partitions are all called
All partitions are formatted in NTFS.
Does anyone have an solution to this problem?
