My external Hard disk (Western Digital 1 TB) started giving me cycling redundancy issue so I decided to format the hard disk.The full format took nearly 2 hours (shut out once due to power cut) but it says it cant format...Any solution?
computer restarted during the disk formatting process? that could have messed up the drive. some bios offer formatting option which might work for you. but i think that the disk might be gone for good.
Computer restart shud not cause any problem for HDD because OS partition is not expected to have damaged.Formatting is nothing but rearranging bytes and will never cause hardware level of corruption.If disk is gone its not due to formatting but by coincidence.
