Removing the Linux Partitions

Be sure to backup your data and delete only the Linux partitions. If you delete a partition with important data on it, it might become impossible to recover.

  1. Boot into your Windows and press Windows Key + R and type diskmgmt.msc. Hit enter.
  2. Once here, identify your Linux partitions (be very careful and verify if you’re not sure). They should usually be in the ext4 or ext3 format.
  3. Right click on the Linux partition and choose Delete volume. Repeat this step if you have more than one Linux partition.
  4. Depending on your requirement, you can use this free space hence generated to extend another partition or else create a new partition.
