Whenever I attempted to do anything with disk management, I get the following error message, saying,

Virtual Disk Manager The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enable devices

Virtual Disk Manager

The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it

has no enable devices associated with it.

How can I solve this? Any idea?

Hi,

The issue here is that you have the Disk defragmenter service Disabled on your system. The Virtual Drive manager is somehow related to the Defragmenter service and hence it shows the error. So just Enabled the Defragmenter service (If not required then you can enable it temporarily) and that should do it for you.

Thanks.

Greetings,

First of all thank you for choosing our site for your query.

You may start the Virtual Disk Service to test this issue:

  • Verify the Virtual Disk service.
  • Click "Start", type "services.msc" (without quotation marks) in the Search bar and press Enter.
  • Note: If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type your password, or click Continue.
  • Right click the "Virtual Disk" service and choose Properties.
  • On General tab click Start.
  • Choose Automatic next to Startup type.
  • Click OK.

If the issue persists,

Then do this,

  • Did you turn off only the Disk Defragmenter Schedule for the SSD?
  • Completely turn off, and you won't have any problems using Disk Management to shrink a partition.

For further more assistance sees these attachments.
