Windows 10 is very convenient to use as it has made everything very easy for its users. It has a lot of improved features including “Disk Management” tool that is not a novel thing for the users of PC. If you have little knowledge about it, let me explain the feature is used to create or remove a partition from the Hard disk. The users know the process of setting up a partition very well because while installing Windows, they could see the option to make partitions in HD. But sometimes you create so many partitions that are not used later. While making partitions sometimes, this MsMpEng.exe error pops up on the screens also so you should fix MsMpEng.exe first before making any HD partitions.
In this way, you need to remove the partition. So, here is how to delete a hard drive partition without re-installing Windows. You do not need to be an expert user of the computer if you want to perform this task. You can do it by yourself by following my step-by-step guide. Let’s start the guide to save your precious time.

Delete Partition by Using Disk Management
You can also use any online tool to remove the partition from Hard Disk as there are loads of software available for this purpose. But I would like to use Disk Management, a built-in tool in Windows 10 for the users that makes my task easy and short.
- If you directly want to open “Disk Management”, there are three different ways to open it. The shortest way is to press “Windows +X” keys to show the essential functions of Windows 10. As it appears on the left corner of the Start Screen, you need to look for “Disk Management” feature in the list. Click as you get it.
(Another hotkey to open “Disk Management” by using “Run” window is “Windows+R” keys. Just press the combination of keys mentioned above to open Run window and type here “diskmgmt.msc” in the bar. Press Enter key)
- When the “Disk Management” window appears on the screen, you will see here all of the partitions you have made earlier. You need to look for the partition you want to remove. As soon as you get it, you need to right-click on it. You will find “Delete Volume” option in the context menu. Select this option.
- As soon as you select the option, you will see the partition exists there no more. You will notice that the volume of free unallotted space has been increased.
It shows that you have done your job perfectly.
Now you can create a new partition with your desired volume of space if you wish so. If you do not want to create any partition, just close the window and return to your tasks.
I should explain one more thing If you want to create or remove any partition from Hard Disk, you do not need a reboot of the system after performing your task. You can continue your works without a reboot.
