So, you created a partition or maybe 10 and are like - well shit.

Not a big deal!

MAKE SURE INSTEAD OF JUST "disk 1", you read the result of "list disk" and select the right number. THIS WILL WIPE/ERASE YOUR DATA!!!
Hint: Disk 0 is typically the single physical hard drive on your system. Disk 1+ may be removable storage like USB, external hard drive, etc.


Code:
Windows Key + R (run)

diskpart

list disk

select disk 1

clean
Now go re-initialize, partition, and format using "Disk Management" or whatever else.
