In this video, I show you how to use a built-in Windows utility called Diskpart to delete protected partitions on a hard disk - partitions that cannot be deleted from Windows' own Disk Management utility. I use Windows 10 in this video, but Diskpart has been available in previous versions as well. If you have multiple disks in your computer, make absolutely certain that you select the correct disk before you start deleting partitions!

If you simply want to clear the entire disk at once (including the partition style of GPT/MBR), you can use the command "clean" at the 2:27 mark. Otherwise, follow the video to delete individual partitions.

My Gear:

Thank you to all my subscribers and viewers!
