I have a SSD drive that was a primary drive but had other partitions.  Need a utility to go back to 1 clean partition to make this a storage drive. The utility FORMAT is not it.

1. If this is not the System Drive, open Disk Management, right click on partition and then click on Delete Volume.

or

2. If this is a System Drive, boot from Windows Installation USB, select Install and when you see this drive, delete all partitons.

or

3. Or open Administrative Command Prompt, run diskpart  command, next list disk command, next select disk x (where x is the number of the drive you want to erase), finally run clean all  command.
