How to Delete a Partition on Windows 11

A partition is, to put it simply, a section of your computer’s storage that has been given a drive letter. For a variety of reasons, the majority of PC makers frequently partition the drives of new systems.

But not every Windows user enjoys partitioning their hard disks. You can’t easily remove the system partition since it houses the boot manager and boot configuration data but you can follow some solutions we have posted for you.

When you delete a Partition using Diskpart, all the files saved on it will be permanently erased. So, it’s important to make a copy of your files somewhere safe before you delete the partition. Sometimes, you might get an error that says you can’t delete a partition. This can happen if the drive is protected. Some partitions, like the C drive, boot drive, recovery drive, or an OEM, are really hard to delete.

Using a third-party software
