When I try to format I get a message saying
"Windows cannot format this drive. Quit any disk utilities or other programs that are using this drive, and make sure that no window is displaying the contents of the drive. Then try formatting again."
1. I took everything off the drive so there should not be a problem.
2. This drive is not running as far as I know.
3. How can I tell if it is running in the background? I don't know why it would there is nothing on it.
When I go through disk management it says...
"The volume My Passport (f
Primary partition is currently in use. To force the format of this volume, click Yes. WARNING: Forcing a format might cause unexpected errors in the application that is using this volume. Do you want to continue?"
So what is this? Is it okay to click yes?
