  • Unable to format hard drive for Windows

    Hello, I need your help here! You receive the same error message saying: "Windows is unable to complete the format" when you try to format an external hard drive on your computer? Honestly, the hard drive of my dell computer recently asked just to get in shape when it has been used on my Windows 7 computer. However, when I click on Yes to format this drive with my lost player documents and files, windows says just windows could not complete for formatting? Honestly, I used Google to search for the error problems related unable to complete the format windows and also asks me to select a formatting program? What you recommend me? This software is useful for my case? Thanks for any suggestions here!


    If you have a mac, you can use a utility called disk pre-installed program. Connect your external DRIVE for mac drive and find an application called disk utility, in disk utility, there should be an option to erase the external HARD drive. It may come with an error similar to what you had before, but it's certainly worth a try. Let me know if this worked for you.

    Thank you

  • format hard drive for windows and larger files, TV supports


    pls suggest me with the solution to the following problem.

    I need to know what format of hard drive works with mac, windows, & TV too, even for large files and quality bluray movies

    FAT32 only supports files up to a maximum size of 4 GB, which would be certainly much too small for Blu - Ray quality media.

    exFAT supports files of unlimited size effectively, Mac and Windows can read and write to exFAT to format external drives but neither can boot from such a unit. If a TV or other system supports exFAT drives, you need to check yourself formatted.

    NTFS supports files of unlimited size indeed, Mac can only read NTFS, it cannot format or write to NTFS, unless you get an add-on. Of course Windows supports NTFS. Again, you will need to check if your TV etc supports NTFS. If you want to add full support for NTFS to a Mac, I recommend this -

    HFS + is the current format of Apple and new supports files of unlimited size effectively. Mac can of course read, write and format disks. Does not support the Windows as a standard HFS +, but still, you can buy an add-on for Windows Add this feature. It is extremely unlikely that a TV would support HFS +. If you want to add full support for HFS + for Windows, take a look at this -

    There are also other formats of disc for example ZFS and BTRFS, Ext3, Ext4 and soon SATF, but in this case, they are not relevant.

    Note: as indicated above, in many cases, I said 'actually unlimited', it is of course a limit, but one so great that he will strike you not for individual files, including Blu - Ray or even files UltraHD (4 k).

  • System recovery format a drive?

    When you do a restore of the system from the recovery partition - it formats the drive before copying the files or copy it just above then? -If i not I thought formatting the drive me beforehard. (The os partition)

    System Restore is the option of Windows and has nothing to do with the installation of the OS.

    What you probably want to know is the recovery system installation. Installation of the recovery system will permanently delete any partition C and all saved data will be gone.

    Can you please tell me what model of laptop do you have?
    You know there is little difference between the older and newer laptop models.

  • How to format the drive "C"?

    How to format my 'C' drive which is clear of all my files and programs? I want to sell my computer but don't want anything of mine on the disc.


    You format the drive as part of the resettlement process.

    Do a clean reinstall of the operating system of your computer to the factory settings; State new, as it was purchased.

    But remember that nothing is definitively deleted; only the 'flag' to where the files are located is removed.

    It is a good program to use to wipe the hard drive of most of the attempts to access your information 'deleted '.

    Then install the own.

    You can contact your computer manufacturer and ask them to send you a set of recovery disks.

    They should do this for a small fee.

    And if you have never received a recovery disk when you bought your computer, there should be a recovery on the drive Partition hard reinstall Windows how much you bought your computer.

    The recovery process can be started by pressing a particular combination of the key or keys at startup. (Power on / start)

    Maybe it's F10, F11, Alt + F10, etc., depending on the manufacturer.

    Ask them to the proper key sequence.

    See you soon.

  • Installation of SP3 on a newly formatted HARD drive


    I have a few questions about the installation of Windows XP Service Packs on newly formatted hard drives.

    Recently I have formatted a new HARD drive and installed Windows XP Home Edition. In order to be upgraded to Service Pack 1 to 3, it is recommended to connect to Windows Update and download and install it from there. I did this and was prompted to install Service Pack 2. During the last steps of the installation (I think that durng the procedure of 'start process'), I lost Internet connectivity and was impossible to reconnect (I use a USB dongle. I think that a virus infection is interfering with the connection). That's why I had to restart my computer for the installation could be completed, but it seemed to be successful that I was able to reboot without any problem. I assume that the installation had actually finished and it was just reset stage that was interrupted.

    Question: even if the installation of Service Pack 2 has not finished and my machine seems to be fine, reinstall Service Pack 2 in order to ensure that it is completely installed?

    Question: Why should I install SP2? If Service Pack 3 contains all fixes and features of all previous Service Packs and it is acceptable to upgrade to Service Pack 1 to 3 directly, why didn't Windows Update invite me to install Service Pack 3 instead?

    Question: I have found a manual download of Service Pack 3 (, but Microsoft strongly recommends that use you it only on machines in a network, and not on a single computer. Y at - it hurt to do?

    A question here, is that if Microsoft recommends that download the latest Service Packs of Windows Update online, so it seems not possible to fully guarantee your Windows installation before connecting the interest for the first time. All the while I'm software download and installation of Service Pack 2, malware, worms and viruses have been infecting my computer (Avast! blocked a malware exploit). So even if I managed to upgrade to Service Pack 3, my machine is already infected.

    Is there a recommended way to upgrade to Service Pack 3 before you connect to the Internet for the first time?

    Thank you

  • Where can I get a copy of the Windows XP installation for my sister. His was a virus and I had to format the drive. It's a registered computer

    Where can I get a copy of the Windows XP installation for my sister. His was a virus and I had to format the drive. It's a registered computer. I have it ready for the operating system but I need to download a copy so I can retrieve my CD-ROM/DVD-Rom drive, so I can then bring to its system and reinstall the XP and then if she wants that we can get a windows 8. I use windows 8 on this system, I bought a few months ago and it's satisfying, but I don't understand why when I got it I could do things like using the keyboard of the screen with my fingers, but now I can't even use the keyboard mouse. It won't work at all. In a way I found it better that way at the beginning because I do a lot of typing and it would freeze until I was constantly stressed. I returned to Windows 7 mode I think but not sure.  All I know is that these two things have never worked correctly, so if they are still under warranty I will bring to the Future Shop and maybe they can fix it. I wish I could turn on and off easily so it does not interfere with my writing and study of a language second.

  • Iso file of windows xp can directly be installed USB on a formatted hard drive?

    Iso file of windows xp can directly be installed USB on a formatted hard drive?

    Not directly.

    There is a SMALL chance that if your hardware supports it (unfortunately never say you anything on your PC or BIOS), you can boot from a USB stick or an optical drive and install Windows XP like this.
    But it is unlikely.
    In addition, tell us what you mean by 'windows xp iso file. This is very vague, and we do not know what you are talking about.
    Finally, if you want to ask questions here, really read the answers and recognize them in some way. Here is a link to your other thread:

    Perhaps I will learn one day someone ask first.

    Mistakingly, I put a copy of xp family on my slave instead of master disc drive.  And if this wasn't enough, so I thought it would be easier to remove the program on the master drive and keep the slave for program files and the master for the storage of the doc, movies. etc.  Probrably you know there not well turm.  On the master drive, I now have a folder that is 25 concerts, which doesn't let me delete or format the drive either.  Any suggestions?


    1. what exactly happens when you try to delete the folder that is located on the master drive? You receive an error message?
    2. What is this folder?
    3. what happens when you try to format the master drive? You receive an error message?

    After return the correct error if you receive one.

    If you want to than Windows XP on the master drive only then change the slave to the master disc or install XP on the master drive.
    To change the master or the slave settings contact the hard drive manufacturer or consult the manual of hard drive.

  • Formatting hard drive

    I have a question already asked variation. I'm trying to format my HDD, which has only a single drive-drive C. Back I get the same messages on disassembly and handles, etc., to which I say yes, but then a message says cannot format because a process always uses the C volume.  Does this mean that I have to keep the format running and dismantle until there is no more process using volume C, or is there a way I can disable all processes using volume C at a time?  Thank you

    Hi WilliamMeek,

    1. How do you access MS-DOS to format the drive?
    2. Do you have any OS installed on the drive?
    3. Which command you use to format the drive?

    You will not be able to format the drive if you are currently connected to the operating system.

    I suggest that use you the Windows XP installation CD and start in the recovery console to format the drive.
