Hello,

Try this 1

If you don't have any important file and want to format that drive then

Click on Start --> In search box, type diskmgmt.msc and press Enter.

"Disk Management" window will be opened.

Right-click on that particular partition --> Select the option "Format".

Check the check box "Perform a quick format" and click on OK.

If you still having problem in formatting that drive then delete that partition and

create it.

In the "Disk Management", right-click on that partition --> You can find the option

delete.Select that option and follow the instructions. Now to create a partition

you can find the instructions in the below link. Refer "To create and format a

partition (volume)" --> Follow the instructions from Step 3

Good Luck
