If an entire partition is involved, I suggest you format it via Disk Management -
START | type diskmgmt.msc

It doesn't show up there. I think its hidden or secret or something because the program is meant to store files safely and secretly i think.

Does the full size of your HDD show up in Disk Management?

Take a screenshot of Disk Management; be sure to expand the screen and attach to post.

My System


There is no hidden or secret partition The WinLocker creates a Virtual Drive. You should have created a Master Password, and then there also is the Password Hint in the software.
