It depends on how it is connected to the computer. A drive connected through an eSATA port should be able to format 1TB in just 1 - 2 hours depending on how loaded the system is (background processes/services, other use while it is formatting, etc). If it is connected via USB2.0, you are looking at approximately 6.3 times longer or up to 13 hours.

If you could reach and constantly maintain the theoretical maximum throughput on eSATA, it would only take about 45 minutes.

Hi my iomega 1tb 2.0 usb drive was formatted yesterday to a fat 32 format and now only 429 gb are available. No matter how i try to format, even back to ntfs format i still only have 429 gb...


Sounds like theres a partition hiding somewhere. You dont need any third party software to do what youre doing. Cli start button and in the run box type Disk Management ....in the window which opens you should see all the drives on the computer .... right click on your 1TB and choose delete partition and also any partition which is not allocated now right click again and choose ne partition. Hopefully after all this you have back your 1TB........cheers and please vote

How come 1tb is equal to 931gb on my new ext. hard drive???


This is due to marketing language. For these people, a KB is 1,000 bytes, not 1,024. Similarly with a MB which is 1,000,000 not 1,048,576.

So when they tell you that your drive is 1TB they mean 1,000 of 'their' gigabytes, which your computer sees as 931 'real' gigabytes.

I have a 1TB iomega external drive but it only shows as 10GB. I have reformatted but it only allows 10GB. What am I doing wrong?


make sure u r formatting in NTFS format since FAT format does not recognize big drives. u can try to use third party software and still do it in FAT32 as long as it is under TB.

Hi, I just bought iomega 1 tb select desktop hard drive, i have a laptop and i have connected to an USB but it is not showing up.


You may need to format the hard drive before you use it.
If your using a PC....go to Control Panel>Admin tools>Computer managemant.Disk Management....Create a new partition and format the drive (NTFS).

Using a Mac go to spotlight and type Disk utillities, partition the drive...
