How can I remove the recovery partition from a corrupt HARD drive that I replaced in a laptop?

I replaced a HDD corrupted in the laptop of a friend and you want to reuse. How can I delete the recovery partition? When I try to use my Windows 7 computer management tool, it will not access? I did a complete player wipe (twice) what the partition is still there and I can't remove it. It's 14 GB of space I want to retrieve and use the HARD drive in another system at a later date.

Thank you


Try the command line option:

Start cmd.exe as an administrator, then inside the window cmd, type


then, type diskpart

list disk

take note of the correct disc ID to clear


Select disk x

(where x is the ID of your disk to erase)



your HARD drive will be erased completely

or you can try the magic of partition:

or if it does not work:

Hiren's boot cd and gparted tool available.

You must create a bootable CD or USB pen as media.

  • How can I change the icon associated with an external hard drive that is displayed in my computer

    When I double click the icon my computer on my Seagate external desktop hard drive does not display the correct icon. It displays a blank page with the upper right handed with a superimposed replica of a small screen.  I really want to show an icon that looks like the real thing as stated in the icons folder.

  • How can I remove the old Windows folder to a different drive?

    Original title: Old files Windows, Program Files, etc.

    I tried to use before Disk Cleanup and it worked, and I haven't run a complete installation.

    I'm having a problem now, this time, and I did a full install.  Disk Cleanup doesn't show any options to remove an old Windows as it did before.

    How can I remove the old Windows folder to a different drive?  I also try to remove the Program Files folder, as well as with an implementation since.

    It is showing an error message "I need to be in the Administrators group ~", and that TrustedInstaller is owner of the present.

    I have a question that "TrustedInstaller" has full authority on the file system, and 'Administrators' has limited access.

    I noticed that there are other three to make a total of four names of users who have all or nearly full access to the file system.

    Can it be fixed... it's pretty annoying to see this continue..., strictly through Windows Update.

    I look forward to your reply.

    Hi Morgan,.

    I suggest you check out the link to delete the Windows.old folder.

    Note: Applies to Windows 7.

    For more information on granting permissions and the taking of property, see the links.

    What are the permissions?

    "Access denied" or other errors in the access to or work with files and folders in Windows

    Ownership of a file from command line:

    To do:

    a. go in > start > all programs > Accessories
    b. right click on prompt and then click Run as administrator.
    c. type the following command and press ENTER:

    takeown /f r d y

    d. to assign administrators group full control to the folder permissions, use the following syntax:

    ICACLS /grant administrators: F/t

    The /T parameter is added so that the operation is performed through all subdirectories and the files in this folder.

    For more information on the above commands, run these commands from a command prompt window.

    takeown /?
    ICACLS /?

    Please post back with the results and we will be happy to help you further.

  • How can I move the Virtual Mode of Windows XP hard drive to another drive

    How can I move the Virtual Mode of Windows XP hard drive to another drive?


    Hi Benyl,

    The vhd in programfiles basis cannot be moved or renamed, if done, xp mode stops at the start.

    To move the files under c, first to boot xp, instead of save mode the machine virtual., turn it off. (settings to prompt the user for action narrow close). Close the machine virtual., and then choose stop. This will remove the vsv file. Do not delete the .vsv file because it contains data if you have not registered in the virtual machine.

    Now, move it "C:\Users\CHRIS.domainname\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows virtual PC\Virtual Machines\Windows XP Mode.vhd" to a desired location.

    Parameters of xp mode open, go to the hard drive 1 setting and reposition the hard drive to the new location of the vhd. You should now be able to start the virtual machine.

  • How can I remove the inventory numbers from a list of dump of the catalog?


    I've been watching way too long code and really can't figure out how to do a dump of the catalogue list without showing the numbers on the right (they appear in brackets).  Actually, I'm not even sure if it's an inventory number, given that the site has no inventory 15, but next to the item to a category, it shows "(15) banks.

    When you do a {module_cataloguelistdump, -2}, which is the number that appears next to your category (in brackets) and how can I remove it?

    I'd love to help someone can offer.  Thanks in advance!

    Please provide more information in this case. Your developer has created a really clever way of counting of products in the catalog and adding the number to the menu items.

    The JS code that does this is here

    This is the code:

    catalogCount: function() {}

    If (($(".prodDumps").) Size() = 0) {return ;}

    $("body") .append (")


    $(".prodDumps_li").each (function () {}

  • How can I remove the program FBDowloader from the computer?

    Original title: FBDowloader won't go away

    My computer has been infected with browser hijacker program, FBDowloader.  I uninstalled the program, and I ran Norton Power Eraser, MalwareBytes, SuperAntiSpyware, McAfee Security Scan and MSE, none of which can locate or remove it.  Power Eraser says that there is no rootkit virus.  Whenever I start my computer and open IE, I go to Tools - Internet Options, reset the home page of the default home page and change the Google search provider.  I then delete FBDownloader as a search engine option.  However, FBDownloader reappears whenever I restart my computer and I have to go through the process of deleting it again.  FBDownloader also appears in Google Chrome and Mozilla, and I've reset and delete there as well.  How can I get rid of this pest?

  • How can I reinstall the operating system on a new hard drive?

    I strongly suspect failure of hard drive on my old computer XPS 420. Data recovery isn't a problem. However, because the way I too lazy to buy a whole new operating system, is possible that I can transfer the installation of Windows Vista on a new hard drive? I told me that Dell will send me an installation disc to do, but how to make a record like this, and is there another way?

    I'm thinking of ghosting the HDD on another and the use of the recovery for nuke partition in a new facility, but it would even work?

    Thank you


    The simplest method, I prefer to install a replacement hard drive, is to clone the existing hard drive to the new, that will also transfer all applications and programs.

    You need an imaging utility, similar to True Image Home 2015.

    Acronis resize partitions transferred to match the size of the new hard drive.

    Hard drive manufacturers, also have their own free cloning software available, but it can be used only with their hard drives.

    First, install the new drive as the secondary and the image of the main hard drive in it.

    Immediately after the cloning, shut down the system, switch the data cable [SATA port 0] to the new disk, making the new master hard drive and see if the system boots properly.

    Start the system with only the new hard drive connected.

    Be sure to leave the original drive disconnected, until the new hard drive is working to your satisfaction.

    Before cloning a hard drive, make sure that the existing drive has no corruption or virus on it, because they will be transferred to the new hard drive.

    It will take a second SATA data cable, there should be a spare connector to SATA power inside the housing.

    If you reside in the United States, or the Canada and are the registered owner of the computer, with an active warranty, a disk that contains the operating system specific to your system factory installed can be requested HERE.
