Connect to Logical Disk Manager Service
I run xp pro with 3 hard drives, all have been working fine. When I wrote os to one of my drives using Eraser to delete
A lot of video files. When I went to format the hard drive in Computer Management(Local), then Disk Manager, I get
A message at the bottom of the box that reads ( unable to connect to logical disk manager server). I keep my virus program
Up to date and ran a virus check to check for errors. I do not want to roll back, but want to get into Disk Manager. This is
Not my C drive. How do I connect to Logical Disk Manager Service?

Try going to Start > Run, and typing:
gpupdate /force /boot

If the machine does not reboot, do it manually.

Lightbulb Figured It Out
I had the same problem with Disk Management, but here's how I fixed it: Went to "Computer Management"
right clicked My Computer and chose "Manage".
Then clicked on "Services and Applications" on the left, and under that, "Services"
and enabled the following services:
COM+ event system, COM+ system application, Volume Shadow Copy, Logical Disk Manager,
and Logical Disk Manager Administrative Services, and System Event Notification, it worked peachy.
I then went to "Disk Management" and was able to perform the functions that I needed to.

Hope this helps.
P.S. those services were disabled on my machine by me because I'm a major tweaker.
I disabled them again when I was done because I like my pc to be AQAP As Quick As Possible.
