Question about Western Digital My Book Essential Edition (WDG1U5000N) 500 GB Hard Drive
I have a Mac running Leopard. I cleared up Memory on My Western Digital My Book by deleting alot of programs but the memory stats have not changed. Why?? Can someone please help me. I want to recover all that memory. Its about 200 GB of programs and folders I deleted.
Try going to Applications, Utilities, Disk Utility and use the Disk Utility program to format the disk.

Tips for a great answer:
How do I format the external hard drive on a Macintosh computer?
To format the drive for MAC OSX
1. Connect the drive to your computer.
2. Open Disk Utility. (Applications folder > Utilities folder > Disk Utility). Select the hard drive in the left hand column and click on the Erase tab.
3. In the Volume Format drop-down menu, select Mac OS Extended *.
4. Once you have selected the format and have named the drive, click on Erase. You will be presented with a 'Are you Sure' dialog.
5. The drive will format and upon completion will be available for use.
Note: * For the best performance, we recommend using Mac OS Extended format. However, if you will be transferring files between a Windows system and a Macintosh, format the drive as MS-DOS (FAT32) or use a program such as MediFour
