I want to format my E: partition, but from the disk manager menu its disabled, and access is denied from powershell.
How do I get this to work?

A partition with the pagefile cannot be formatted or deleted. You first need to disable the pagefile, or move it to another disk. If you wish the pagefile to be on the formatted E, disable it now and re-enable after the format. You should not stay permanently without having any pagefile, only temporarily.
E:and click 'No paging file'
You may, the same way, pick
C: as the disk for housing a new pagefile.
