The disk must not contain any partitions or data before you can change it back to a basic disk.

If you want to keep your data, back it up or move it to another partition before you convert the disk to a basic disk.

You don't need to use a command prompt to convert. The correct way is to use Disk Management:
Control Panel > Admin Tools > Computer Management > Disk Management

I agree with Phil22. You should backup your drive and then empty it, before converting. And try using disk management as phil22 suggested.
