    Disk Management reallocation issues.


    So I've been playing around with FreeNAS on another rig, you install the server on a USB drive and run the server form the flash drive. I've decided to go another rout and not use free nas so I went to format the 2 flash drives I was messing with and there are some partitions I can't remove with disk management, and space missing.

    Disk 3 should be 4GB large but I can only find the 943 MB

    disk 2.jpg

    disk 3.jpg

    It doesn't give me any options to change the volumes on Disk 4.

    any help would be great.

    You can try using diskpart to fix those volume issues or use some third party applications like Easeus Partition Master or Partition Wizard MiniTool.

    You don't need to use any third party software. Just use diskpart.
    Run Admin command prompt and type: diskpart then follow the screen shots below:
