Hi, I set up BitLocker out of curiousity and now I've removed it, but I still have a unused S drive taking up 1.46 GB.
What I want to do is go to Computer Management, then delete the S:, then expand C:, but if I try to delete the S: I get the message "Windows cannot delete the active system partition of this disc."
Note that I used the BitLocker Drive Preparation Tool to automatically do the partitioning for me. Also note that I have disabled BitLocker, and my drive is not encrypted at the moment.
Here's how Computer Management reports my drives:
C: Boot, Page File, Crash Dump, Primary Partition
S: System, Active, Primary Partition
I guess I need to make the C: the active, system partition, but I've no idea how, and I'm not 100% clear on the details of what the drive preperation tool did to my volumes so I don't want to take a wild stab at what to do.
I tried clicking C: and selecting make Active partition, but then I get the warning: "Only mark a partition as active if it contains a functioning operating system. If the partition lacks an operating system, marking it active might case your computer to stop working." Since the preperation tool was the one that fiddled with my volumes, not me, I don't know wether C: contains an OS, or whether it was moved (rather than copied) to S:, so I didn't want to risk trying that. Also, even if that worked, that would move the "Active" flag from S to C, but what about the "System" flag, what does that one mean?
Why didn't they make a Bitlocker Drive UN-preperation Tool to go along with the preperation tool?
