I have a strange problem. I have an external HDD which I use for a Linux distro I use.
I've deleted all the partitions on it in order to create some new partitions and now I have one huge 950GB unallocated partition. My problem is that I cannot create an extended or logical partition. I have used 4 different software to re-partition my drive, but I can only have 4 primary partitions. I am sure that I had 2 logical partitions before all of this on this external HDD.
I have used:
- Live Ubuntu
- Live Gparted
- MiniTool partition
- EaseUS Partition Master
In all above methods I can not choose extended or logical partition because they are inactive. I know 4 primary partitions are enough for me, but I would like to know what is wrong that I can not create an extended or logical partition.
