One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty

5.when deleted Right click free space and select create a new partition.
6.follow the instructions and you're done.

I was told by an error message to reformat my hard drive 500 GB. I have been using it as a time capsule backup for my mac. Not sure how to proceed. Help! Thanks


Back up all important files and applications. Open the system drive, usually titled "Macintosh HD." Open applications, then Utilities and double click the "Disk Utility" program to open it. A window will open giving a list of all the drives currently mounted on the computer. on the "Erase" tab to the right of the list of drives. The window will now display the options for erasing the hard drive and formatting it to work on the Macintosh computer.

When i click my hard drive, it tell me to format it. ????


have you try to connect it to a different computer?

if yes and getting the same problem you need to call your WD for the warranty and replace it. if your up to your files inside your storage i guess they will endorse you to their third party company that will recover your data storage and it will cost a lot.
