It shows Disk 4
Unknown 1863.02 GB
Not Initiated
(Unallocated).

"A device which does not exist was specified"

The same HDD has a partition that is working for the same space but there is a ghost partition. I tried to partition the drive and realized windows was running from a different drive so I restarted my PC and maybe i did it too soon. When i switched and tried to partition it wouldn't let me but it showed another drive for the same space that let me partition now I have 2 partitions showing 1 unable to remove or do anything with and the other works.

Backup all your critical data first then start with a fresh install of Windows, wiping out all partitions and creating them how you want them.
its a secondary drive im using to store programs/data. Its brand new just added a few programs last night. IWould re-partitioning fix it? would it get rid of the ghost partition?
