Hello Sibu, Sorry but my PC crashed and I was not able to continue, so when you are able may we continue because I still have the problem. Thank you. I am on line now.
have you tried formatting in SAFE mode
No. because that is when the PC crashed.
ok try now
and let me know
My PC just will not go to Safe Mode. ?
download above program and install
then using it format the hard disk
Hi Sibu, Now I am totallly confused. I do not want to format my C drive. All I want to do is to have the full capacity of the Buffalo Hard Drive which is at least 100 GB. At the moment there is no data on it and tells me it's full capacity is 95.9 MB, which is not correct. Thank you
after formatting it will show full capacity
I downloaded the program you suggested (Partition Manager Home edition) and shows only C Drive not Buffalo ( is this correct?) but it will not alow to format. Drive G (Buffalo) does not appear with Drive C. Sorry I am taking so long to understand.
click above link and downlaod the tool
and run it to format the external hard disk
Hi, Did that but could not format because it is write protected. ?
try to use the tool in SAFE mode
Downloaded the tool, went into safe mode and selected format, but again said "unable to continue because it is write protected.
download above program and install it
then using it try to erase the hard disk
I began installing this above program and message said this PC is unable to operate this program.
I am running out of ideas ...Sorry
I will opt out and let other experts to help you
Many thanks Sibu for your help.
