All disks can be formatted or Erased, what you need is the Software to do it. I found Acronis to be the best software for this job, you just insert the disk and follow the instructions. But be careful, once formatted you can not retrieve any info back, and it also formats your Boot to where you have no system at all installed. You will then have to insert a system disk of your choice and install it to your new clean drive. Good Luck.

How to install Windows 7 from a .iso without burning onto a DVD


proxy?url=http%3a%2f%2f1.bp.blogspot.com%2f_uu-faylkkn4%2fs5sjwgyglri%2faaaaaaaaih0%2fwwn5u85pula%2fs400%2fwindows7_logo.jpg&container=focus&gadget=a&rewritemime=image%2f*&refresh=31536000 Windows 7 doesnot allow you to install off the same Hard Disk. But if you didn't want to burn the .iso image of Windows 7 that you downloaded to a new DVD - you can still install it off the .iso file by using the method below.
You will need a portable hard disk / pen drive though.
Incase, you have a portable hard disk or a pen drive - do the following : 1. Get WinRar (www.rarlabs.com) and install the software on your machine. WinRar is similar to winzip but supports many other formats including .iso. 2. Extract the .iso of Win7 to your pen drive / portable hard disk. Place the extracted files into the root of the drive - your other data can be put into folders. 3. Restart your laptop and hold F9 / F2 to enter into boot-menu which gives you a choice to load from. Here select your pen-drive / portable hard disk - usually a USB device.
Done - that's all it takes. You can now go ahead with the normal install process.

Samsung G2 Portable External Hard Drive cannot be formatted. "Unable to complete the format"


Try deleting any partitions on the drive by using Control panel, administrative tools, computer management, disk management. now highlight the drive and right click and click on delete partition. Now create a new partition and see if it will do a full format on it. if not then its stuffed. you have no choice but to buy another drive.

Why i cant format my seagate 500gb potable hard drive, when format it in quick format its show an error that the hard drive not successfully formatted. what should i do? please help me, i need it asap....


The disk-drive inside the enclosure is "dying".
If the warranty still is valid, exercise the warranty to get it replaced, at minimal cost to you.
If the warranty has expired, open the enclosure, remove the disk-drive, and take the disk-drive to a computer-store. Buy a new, compatible, drive, and then "transplant" it into the enclosure, to "revive" your external file-storage appliance.

Go into the control panel.

Go to administrtive tools.

Go to Computer management.

Click on disk management on the left side of the screen.

Click on the drive you partitioned.

Were they partitioned as NTFS or a different format?
