Solution #1:

  1. Please open File Explorer by clicking on the small yellow folder icon at the bottom of your computer's screen (or you can open any folder).
  2. Then click on option This PC on the left.
  3. Then open the F: drive there.
  4. If you have any data / file you need there, then move them to your Documents folder, etc. Usually, you should not have any data / file saved there.
  5. Then go back. (Or close the window, then open File Explorer by clicking on the small yellow folder icon at the bottom of your computer's screen (or you can open any folder), then click on option This PC on the left.)
  6. Then right-click on the F: drive, then click on option Format.
  7. Then click on Yes. That should resolve the issue.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
