Parameter Format Not Correct in Command Prompt

Since many people are confused about the error message "parameter is not correct" while trying to modify a drive partition in command prompt in Windows 10, 8.1, 8, 7, XP and Vista, we decide to explain what this error suggests and how to fix it in a fast & simple way.

What's wrong with "parameter format is not correct"?

When Windows diskpart says parameter format is not correct, it means that you typed one or more parameters that do not have a valid format for this command. For instance, you may have added a numerical value for a switch that will not allow a value to be specified. Or you may have used an incompatible combination of parameters. 

How to figure out which parameters are invalid?

Sometimes it's really troublesome to find out where it goes wrong because even a subtle difference would cause parameter format error, like a quotation or a space that don't arouse our attention, especially for average users.

Usually, simply typing HELP at the command prompt followed by the command name would help figure out which parameter is valid for this command.
