Today I got an external 1TB drive (made by Western Digital). I needed it to back up my system periodically. When I tried to change partition and file system to NTFS from FAT 32 I ran into a problem. In Administrative Tools -> Computer Management -> Disk Management snap-in panel hanged on "Connecting to Virtual Disk Service..."
After wasting some time searching for answers on the Internet, I decided to run Computer Management as Administrator... Duh... I should have done it right away. So Disk Management snap-in panel opened up fine and I was able to configure partitions on my external hard drive.
In order to run as Administrator right click on the program icon and select "Run as administrator".
Have a good new year.
This problem was conformant to ISolvable interface ;)
