Topic: File system unknown / unformatted
I am incurring in a problem using GParted.
I hope to find some help here :-) Thanks for your effort.
I am trying to create a partition for Liux in my Windows 7 64 HP EliteBook850 G3.
This HP has a SSD 500 GB memory, which is already divided into 4 partitions.
Following a guide , I have deleted System partition.
I am encountering many problems:
1. I can't shrink C partition, neither using MiniTool partition Wizard, EaseUS partition Wizard or GParted. The reasons seems that C is full (no space unused) which is of course not true. If these software don't detect available space, shrinking is impossible. How can I solve this?
2. MiniTool, EaseUS and GParted don't recognize the file system of C, and it appears as 'unformatted' for GParted or 'Unknown' for MiniTool. This is strange because when using Diskpart in windows, C's file system is detected as NTFS, as it should be. Why is there a discrepancy between what these softwares and Windows detect?
3. Windows somehow is still detecting System partition even though I have deleted it and is no unallocated space. MiniTool, EaseUS and GParted instead don't recognize System (it appears as unallocated space). Why is there a discrepancy between what these softwares and Windows detect?
When I run GParted, a strange error message appears, you can access it here.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Problem 1 and Problem 2 appeared also before I deleted System partition. Therefore, I don't think they are related to System partition.
Thank you so much for your help
