This article describes why you cannot use Disk Management to create or delete partitions on removable storage media.


You cannot use the Disk Management snap-in to create or delete partitions on removable storage media, such as tapes and optical disks. Such media either do not require partitioning, or should contain only one partition. Using more than one partition confuses the Removable Storage service.
