Formatting from RAW to exFAT does not work. computer (Toshiba satellite W7) says unsuccessful


How to Format Hard Drive With Windows 8 eHow

Step 1:

Back up all data on the drive you want to format. Tap the "Search" icon on the Windows Start screen and type "format disk" in the Search field. Select "Create and Format Hard Disk Partitions." The Disk Management utility opens.

Step 2:

Click the drive that you want to format. Note that in most cases "Disk 0" is the drive with the Windows operating system on it. If this is the disk you want to format, you should reinstall Windows instead.

Step 3:

Click the "Action Menu," select "All Tasks," and then click "Delete Volume..." Double-check that you have the right drive selected. The selected drive is shaded with diagonal stripes.


531c247a-9340-42a7-a785-35c37c5490ba.pngSelect "Delete Volume." (Image courtesy of Microsoft.)



Step 4:

Click "Yes" at the warning that all data on the partition will be deleted. After a few seconds, the volume is deleted. The drive is now listed as unallocated in the Disk Management window.


d35f80cd-51ea-4d05-8911-98dcebc0c93d.pngDisk Management warns that all data on the partition will be lost. (Image courtesy of Microsoft.)



Step 1:

Select the drive you are formatting if it isn\'t already selected. Click the "Action" menu, then "All Tasks" and "New Simple Volume." The New Simple Volume Wizard opens. Note that if the disk is part of an array, advanced users will have additional options like creating a new spanned volume, striped volume, mirrored volume or RAID-5 volume.

Step 2:

Click the "Next" button in the New Simple Volume Wizard so you can specify your preferences.


2b3d2635-9525-4ee5-a259-c38b5ba47fbf.pngThe New Simple Volume Wizard opens. (Image courtesy of Microsoft.)



Step 3:

Specify how much space should be used in the new volume by entering a value in the text field. If you are creating only one volume or partition in the drive, this number should be the same as the maximum disk space displayed above. Click "Next."


40a2b160-a7c4-4669-9f7b-9acdec319786.pngSpecify the volume size. (Image courtesy of Microsoft.)



Step 4:

Select a drive letter that you would prefer the computer to use for this drive. If you don\'t want a letter assigned, click the "Do Not Assign a Drive Letter or Drive Path" option. Advanced users may also prefer to mount the drive in an empty NTFS folder. Click "Next."


a7adfda9-4b8d-4ac9-8d3f-f9ffd7313665.pngSpecify a drive letter. (Image courtesy of Microsoft.)



Step 5:

Select a file system for the volume. Your options are ExFAT or NTFS. Use ExFAT if you\'re going to share files with a Mac computer; otherwise, NTFS is the better choice. Unlike its predecessors, ExFAT can support the same volume sizes as NTFS -- up to 256TB. However, it\'s not as robust as NTFS and doesn\'t support file system-level encryption and built-in compression. Mac computer\'s can\'t write files to an NTFS drive.


9a87dfc0-3bf5-43bc-9c8b-f51801f8795b.pngSelect a file system. (Image courtesy of Microsoft.)



Step 6:

Select the "Perform a Quick Format" option if the drive doesn\'t contain any private information, or if you\'re using the drive for your personal use. A Quick Format takes only a few seconds, but the data it leaves behind can be easily recovered by anyone with the right software. A full format takes much longer but it does erase every byte of data. Select the "Enable File and Folder Compression" option if desired. Type a name for the volume and click "Next."


3e35ad5c-5391-4201-a130-a49a67a41fd4.pngChange the volume label if desired. (Image courtesy of Microsoft.)



Step 7:

Click "Finish" after reviewing the settings that were applied to the new volume. If you want to change anything, click the "Back" button and format the drive again.


777198bd-fcb2-4516-b752-36d350d7ca61.pngClose the New Simple Volume Wizard by clicking "Finish." (Image courtesy of Microsoft.)



Step 8:

Select another drive or volume to format, or exit the Disk Management utility.

Tips & Warnings



  • If you\'re formatting a drive to give to someone else, or if you\'re disposing of a drive that has sensitive information on it, you should always deselect the Quick Format option so Windows can perform a full format. However, even a full format may not make the data completely unrecoverable. The only way to be 100 percent certain that data can\'t be recovered is to destroy the drive.

I have made a disk image, with file extension .wmf, but don't know how to open it and get all the disk data back ??


wrong file extension. if you made a image of the OS it should have been a .iso this is burnable and easy to open with winrar or a dvd burner program for image burning.
The ISO file type is primarily associated with 'ISO-9660 CD Disc Image'. A literal dump of the data on the CD, byte-for-byte. The data is stored in the ISO-9660 format. IsoBuster can interpret these files directly.



The .wmf file type is primarily associated with 'Windows Metafile' by Microsoft Corporation. Microsoft graphic format. Xara X is a good program to edit this file type if you don't have Microsoft tools. There are several versions of a Metafile; each having a different header structure.

Create Windows XP Setup diskettes

Microsoft is beginning to phase out bootable floppy diskettes in favor of bootable CD discs and has not included a method of easily creating a bootable floppy diskette in Windows XP or from the CD. However, Microsoft has downloads available for users who still need to create bootable diskettes to install (not upgrade) Windows XP. These downloads can be found through KB310994.

Hi.

To format the hard drive and reinstall the system you need either a Window 7 install disk or a HP Windows recovery disk for your laptop model.

See links below:

How do i format my computer?


Open "My Computer".
Click with the SECOND (usually the RIGHT) mouse-button on the icon for the 'C:' drive.
Choose 'Format'.

The "format" process will write blocks of data, filled with "zero" bytes, over 100% of your disk-drive.

When the process completes, you'll have to re-install Windows onto this newly "wiped" disk.
