I can't format my removable drives. It shows a message that some other program is using that drive even when no other program is running also not the antivirus.

What can I do? Please Help.

Try this 1

Try formatting your removable drive from command prompt.

Click on Start ---> Run ---> Type cmd and press Enter.

"Command Prompt" will be opened.

Here I assume your removable drive letter is G drive.

Now enter this command.

format /q /x g: and press Enter.

Note : Don't forget to replace the letter "g" with your removable drive letter.

Good Luck
Thank you so much...for help...!!!!!!!!!1
