Got laptop that had an extra drive in it (the 850 Evo). It comes up as a Microsoft storage space in device manager and cant be initialized in disk manager or formatted it in DiskPart

Disk part said it was cleaned successfully but still cant format or create a new volume. When I tried to create a volume it said that a disk specified is not dynamic. I also tried to create a primary partition and it said:

 

DiskPart has encountered an error: A device which does not exist was specified.
See the System Event Log for more information.

 

I do that (bruh moment) It comes up with this:

 

VDS fails to write boot code on a disk during clean operation. Error code: 800701B1@02070008

 

Is it doomed for the drive.

Windows drive management works about 80% of the time in my experience. The way to get this to work will be to format it and wipe it in Linux. Make a bootable USB of Ubuntu, and you can fix this in the live environment. Boot into the Linux USB, and either quit the installer or click an option saying something along the lines of "try before installing". Once you're in the live environment, open up GParted to try to reformat the drive. Try to reformat it with the NTFS file system, and boot into Windows and see if it works. If you have any issues, you might need to do this through the command line, but it's not as hard as it would sound.

Just out of curiosity, other than diskpart did you try any other software?  I use AOMEI Partition Assistant (FREE) for everything that I do with the drives in my machine.  You have nothing to lose and everything to gain.  Good Luck.

Delete the storage space, then you'll have access to the raw drive again.

Control panel, storage spaces, you should screenshot what you have in there and how it's configured.

I looked at that but it didn't seem to work right. Also clicking on change settings does nothing it loads (changes mouse cursor) but then does nothing and i cant select it again until i close it and re open it. (in the screenshot i cant click it again.)
