In DISK MANAGEMENT the partition on a HDD shows cross-hatched lines. What does that signify?
Thanks

Can you post a screenshot of Disk Management showing the partition?

That means the partition is selected for any operation. If you left-click any other partition it will become the selected partition and become cross-hatched.

 

I was visualizing something else when you said cross-hatched.

Thanks John.  I'll take the "WEENIE OF THE WEEK" award :wacko:     (Switched drives and was sure I had screwed something up!)
