About two weeks ago I had to restore my computer, that has a 3 tb hdd installed. Upon restoring, I did the shift + f10 in the windows 10 installation and cleaned and converted to gpt. When I created the lone HDD partition, it ended up also creating a Drive 0 Unallocated Space, which was what the previous was called before I converted it (note, this Unallocated Space did not appear until after I configured the previous Drive 0). For some reason, there is no way to format it, delete it, or configure it or install anything on it. It is not a separate D:// or anything, but it's still attached to C://. I've tried disk management, I've tried external programs, and none of them have seemed to fix the problem. (note, in disk management it shows the unallocated space as part of C://). When I googled this problem, all I get are instructions on separate space not attached to C://, so I haven't had any luck there.

Not entirely sure what is causing this, but I would like to find a fix if anyone is willing to help. Thanks to all who reply :)

Please download MiniToolBox  , save it to your desktop and run it.
 
Checkmark the following checkboxes:
  List last 10 Event Viewer log
  List Installed Programs
  List Users, Partitions and Memory size.
 
Click Go and paste the content into your next post.
 
Also...please Publish a Snapshot using Speccy taking care to post the link of the snapshot in your next post.

   Go to Piriform's website, and download the free version on the left.  Click Download from Piriform.com (the FileHippo link requires an extra click). Or if you want to use a portable version of Speccy (which doesn't require installation), click the builds page link and download the portable version. You will now be asked where you want to save the file. The best place to put it is the Desktop, as it will be easy to find later.

    After the file finishes downloading, you are ready to run Speccy. If you downloaded the installer, simply double-click on it and follow the prompts until installation is complete. If you downloaded the portable version, you will need to unzip it before use. Right-click the ZIP file and click Extract all. Click Next. Open up the extracted folder and double-click on Speccy.
 
     Once inside Speccy, it will look similar to this (with your computer's specifications, of course):
 
post-33068-0-86653600-1480692866_thumb.j

     Now, at the top, click File > Publish Snapshot.

     Click Yes > then Copy to Clipboard

Now, once you are back in the forum topic you are posting in, click the ADD REPLY or REPLY TO THIS TOPIC button. Right-click in the empty space of the Reply box and click Paste. Then, click Add Reply below the Reply box.

You do not need to create the partitions, Windows will do this automatically. In fact on a GPT disk of Windows 10 you need at least three partitions, the EFI system partition formatted FAT32, The Microsoft Reserved Partition, and your Windows partition. Windows 10 also provides for a RE partition which is used when accessing the Advanced Boot Options.

 

Start your Windows install again and press shift + F10 for a command prompt then 

 

diskpart

list disk

select disk 0      Make sure zero is the number associated with the disk you found in the list disk command that you will be installing Windows to.

clean                 This deletes all partitions currently on the disk

convert GPT

exit

exit

 

continue with the install. Where you get to the screen showing partitions, which will show none, click next.

 

Just to be clear, there is only one drive on this computer, correct? If you have more than one drive then I would detach any data disks you have when reinstalling. 

 

Edit: I am assuming you wish to reinstall Windows 10, correct?

JohnC_21,
I've said that I have tried that in my original post :P I've done the SHIFT+F10 diskpart thing multiple times and each time that unallocated space keeps coming back. Note that I HAVE, upon initial startup when I got my computer, had all 3tb available. And yes, there is only one drive on this computer, which is shown above in the screenshots. I would like to prevent re-installing windows 10, but if I have to I don't mind, so long as I have a fix to this dilemma.

Worth A Look re the DCOM errors.

 

Two troublesome apps, Citrix and XCom2...I would uninstall/reinstall those as my attempt at a quick fix.

 

I cannot explain the apparent partition marked "Unallocated"...I'm not familiar with Win 10.  But, the appearance of such is (apparently) common enough in Windows 10, see Google List Of Topics.

That screenshot of Disk Management doesn't look like an installation on a GPT formatted drive should look. There is no EFI partition. The 2 Tb partitioned space limit is consistent what you hit with drives formatted with an MFT partition scheme.

 

When installing Windows 10, make sure you are booting from the installation media in UEFI mode rather than legacy mode. For example, if installing from a DVD, you press F12 to enter boot options at start up and choose the option that looks like "UEFI:#Make/ModelDVDDrive#".

jonuk is correct. The simple reason you keep having that unallocated space is because you formatted the drive as MBR and not GPT. MBR cannot detect anything past 2TB and that is the reason you keep getting that unallocated space. It's also required that the computer be UEFI in order to boot Windows on a GPT disk. What is the make and model of the computer or the MB if a custom build.

 

Edit: I would add that if the computer is not UEFI some hard drive manufacturers provide a utility to access the full drive when using Legacy BIOS and MBR.

 

If you would have followed my steps. 

 

diskpart

list disk

select disk 0      Make sure zero is the number associated with the disk you found in the list disk command that you will be installing Windows to.

clean                 This deletes all partitions currently on the disk

convert GPT     Initializes the disk as GPT for drives over 2TB

exit

exit

 

 

The clean and convert GPT commands would allow you to access the full amount of disk space. You speccy image is the same as your Disk Management image.

On the MiniToolbox output it says it's using a Gigabyte B250M-D3H motherboard, which is a recent design.  UEFI will be fully supported.

 

I would add that even if the OP had successfully converted the disk to GPT, if the Windows installer was subsequently run in Legacy Mode, it would not be able to install to that disk without wiping the partitions and recreating them in the legacy MBR format.  This is exactly what I'd guess has happened.  It's essential that the installer is run in UEFI mode as per - https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/manufacture/desktop/boot-to-uefi-mode-or-legacy-bios-mode

 

Unfortunately it's not possible to solve this non destructively. You will need to wipe the disk and re-install from scratch.

Missed that, thanks.

Very good point. I need to remember this as a possible reason for a failure to access the full disk.
