You must format additional drive partitions on the domain controller before you can use them to store software and user data.

To format drive partitions

  2. Expand Storage, and click Disk Management.

  3. In the right pane, right-click the volume (D:), and click Format.

  4. Type a volume label that reflects the contents of this partition (such as Apps). Accept the other formatting defaults (NTFS, default allocation unit size), and click OK.

  5. When formatting is complete, close the Computer Management snap-in.
