I started FDISK and followed the instructions on deleting the partition.
i deleted the primary part.
then tried to delete the ext. part. and it said cant delete while logical
drive exist.
tried to delete the logical and thats where i run into a problem.
it wont let me.

im trying to free up the whole drive to use for storage. is it something im
doing wrong.
