QuestionI must have done something wrong with DISKMGMT Pin

My work laptop has one hard drive, but I've been wanting to partition it so I can have my work separate from the operating system (Windows 7).

Today I finally got around to trying it. A quick online search provided instructions for using Disk Management to shrink a partition, create a new partition, assign a drive letter, format it. I did all that. It looked good. I moved a bunch of files from C to F (the new partition). And it was good. Until I rebooted.

After rebooting, the F drive (partition) shows as RAW (instead of NTFS) and the system says it needs to be formatted. I know I put files there, so I hesitate to reformat.

More searching hasn't turned up a solution.

Going on the idea that maybe the letters for the partitions on a physical drive have to be consecutive, I reordered the letters so now the new partition is D, but that didn't help.

For a while the DVD drive (previously was D, now E) was also acting strange, but it seems OK now.

Has anyone else seen this? Can anyone point to a solution?

I guess I'll reboot again.

Edit: I still don't know what went wrong or how to fix it, so this morning I bit the bullet and reformatted. This time things seem OK. It survived a reboot and I'm restoring files again.
You'll never get very far if all you do is follow instructions.
