Create one of my choice. Which format is best depends on your use. For example if you have to use it with some devices, fat32 may get the nod. Most of the time NTFS is used.
Need to reformat my Seagate GoFlex 500gb. Had to let Dish format it to copy from one Hopper to new Hopper. I would like to turn it back into a GoFlex. Running Win 7 on Dell. In Control Panel>System and Security>Admin Tools>Computer Mgmt>Disk Mgmt...Disk 1 shows no assigned Drive:.. 2 partitions (one 1.0gb next 464.76gb) both healthy(Primary Partition).
Do I need to remove volume from both partitions ? Then I can assign a drive (shouldn't assigning be automatic ?) Then I can format ? Then I can copy everything I saved before formatting ?
Just want to make sure of the steps before I completely turn it into a night light/paper weight.
Follow up, should it be in NTFS or FAT32, which is best ? and Do I need to partition.
Thanks to all,
