    There is only one partition under disk part/ list disk
    It is not a partition, it is a disk. list disk will give you the number of disks in your PC such as 0, 1, 2 etc...
    If you only have one disk, then it will list as disk 0, to see the partitions inside the disk, you need to do steps 3 and 4 above.

    Ok I was missing the list partition step. SORRY.
    now I can see 4 partitions.
    Partition 1 primary 350mb
    Partition 2 unallocated space 104.7Gb
    Partition 0 extended 91Gb
    Partition 3 logical 593Gb

    I do not know what it with Partition 0, every thing else I recognize. So I can CLEAN now my faulty partition.

    I really don't understand why it listed 1,2,0,3 in this sequence. Can you make a screen shot of your disk from disk management and post it.
