    I run xp pro with 3 hard drives, all have been working fine. When I wrote o’s 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.

    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.
