Disk Doctor error "The partition structure is not supported by windows".

When I run Norton Disk Doctor's "Check Partition Structure" it returns an error stating "The partition structure is not supported by windows".   Unfortunately the error message doesn't prescribe any remedy or even tell me if this is a real problem

This error is in reference to the Recovery section of my hard disk which is a Toshiba MK3252GSX drive on a Sony Vaio VGN-FW170J laptop.

Disk Doctor reports the following:

  • Drive type: Primary
  • File system: NTFS
  • Total Space: 8.02 GB
  • Free space: 895.75 MB (11%)
  • Status: Warnings

Is there anything that I can (or should) do to remedy the problem?

Which drive were you checking?

Could it have been the recovery partition for a factory reset? If so, just ignore the warnings. It could be a proprietory format that does not support Windows.

Things happen. Export/Backup your Norton Password Manager data.

Hi,

This could be the VAIO EISA Recovery (factory reset partition).
