Here's what I did:

I have my External Hard Drive that I tried to format to FAT32 (235GB or so) and went terribly wrong. Now the fucker won't work because CMD/DiskPart turned the whole fucking thing into RAW format.
It's fucking dead.

So DiskPart listed my External Hard Drive as Disk 1.
Selected it, and assigned a new letter and a volume of 1024 x 235... but the fucker did a partition in C or some shit, I'm not excusing me for being fucking stupid.

Now I don't know how to get back the 256mb partition back to C because Device Manager has grayed out options.
Internet is not bringing any help, so I'm with my tail between my legs begging you for help. :cry:

Here's a screenshot of the Volumes on Disk 0 (that is on (C) )

I want to eliminate (get back into (C) the Volume 1 X SYSTEM FAT32

EDIT: Screenshot of Disk Manager on Computer Management (can't delete volumes/partitions because the options are grayed out)

EDIT; Now it's not showing it but Disk Manager does shows it! And I have unchecked the "Hide Empty Volumes" and "Hide System Files and Drives"

Requesting a Lock of this thread because this has been solved.

Asked on Reddit and a cool guy helped me solve this confussion.
Turns out that the "SYSTEM" partition is the Boot partition that Windows uses.

Somehow it decided to show up after trying to format my External Hard Drive. Don't ask me, because I'm confused as fuck as to why or how this happened.

This guy said:
"I too am confused because your partitions are backwards"
"Have you updated Windows recently?"

I said:
"Yes, yesterday it updated"

And he said: "Makes sense, it's just Windows doing Windows stuff"

Basically: Windows Update is showing hidden partitions... suddenly. Partitions reserved for System Boot and other stuff.

I panicked because this followed exactly as I finished "formating" my External Hard Drive to Fat32 (which didn't worked) and seeing the "SYSTEM" partition as Fat32, made me think; "Oh shit! I made the partiton on C instead of my External Hard Drive"

Makes sense now?

This is why, in the first screenshot, it shows Windows (C:), RECOVERY (D:) and (SYSTEM)
And that's why after restarting my computer it only shows Windows (C:) and RECOVERY (D:)

    Kinda makes me sad everyone is believing in emulation gives less of a reason for consoles to exist
    Gift
  • T @ trimesh:
    I appreciate the convenience of emulation - but at the same time there is a feeling you get from using original hardware that's hard to match.

    Some things (like Super Famicom games) just feel right when you play them using the original hardware and a CRT

    Not so sure about that - the tendency for "graphics uber alles" tends to lead to very high power consumption

  • KenniesNewName @ KenniesNewName:
    If you look at what's now portability graphics are catching up to console quality

    The thing is that the IATA rules impose a pretty hard limit of 100Wh on battery sizes for lithium batteries - and it doesn't look like Li is going away soon
    Gift
  • T @ trimesh:
    So if you want (say) 4 hours of runtime you need a maximum system-level power consumption of 25W

    For reference, the PS5 is rated at 350W and the Xbox series X at 275W - and that's console only, without any display
