JSI Tip 4704. The Storage section of the Computer Management Console is blank?


When you try to expand the Storage section of the Computer Management snap-in, there are no sub-sections?

This problem is indicative of missing registry entries needed to initialize the Storage section.

You could restore to a working instance, but it is easier to Copy / Paste the following into a FixStorage.reg file and double-click the file to Merge it into the registry:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 

\[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MMC\NodeTypes\\{476e644a-aaff-11d0-b944-00c04fd8d5b0\}\]
