How i can reformat toshiba canvio 320 g on my macbook pro

To totally reformat the hard drive which will delete everything off it. Go to your applications folder and then to the utilities folder and double-click on disk utility. In the left hand column select your drive then select the erase button once on the erase section select the format you want to format the drive in (if you are only going to use it on a mac select Mac OS Extended, if it is going to be used on both macs and PCs select MS-DOS (FAT)) then choose the name you want to call your drive and then select erase.


Hope this helps.

Hi There, when you formatted the hard drive, did you remember to partition the space correctly? If not, run through the process again, and remember to partition it again. If it is saying a corrupt hard drive, it means that the hard drive can't be read. Like trying to read a paper that has been burned in a fire. If the hard drive is corrupt after format, you need to buy a new hard disk, and remember to make sure it is the same kind as the old one.

Wiping the hard drive

i presume you have not formatted the drive yet. first make sure there is a restore partition on the drive.... after that go into the start menu and look for a menu item called restore or restore tools .... i'm not 100 % familiar with that computer but the basics of restoring the system are generic.
