    Formating New Harddisk


    Hello,
    I think this will be sortof stupid question but still I'll ask.
    I want to add a hard disk to my pc just for data. The disk was removed from my old pc after running DBAN to clean it up. I do not want to divide it into partitions, just one large data storage. Disk size is 500 GB. I know I have to format it, does formating to ntfs make it a 64 bit, or have to add something to the formating proccess.
    OS is win 10 pro 1709 English 64 bit.
    Answers will be appreciated.
    Thanks


    :)

    How To Format A Write Protected Flash Memory ?

    ¿You already tried this one?...

    Run CMD


    1. diskpart
    2. list disk

    Then in the 3º step, put the correct number of disk in the list for the usb flash (if it's listed in disk 3, then you'll have to write select disk 3).

    2. select disk #
    3. clean
    4. create partition primary
    5. select partition 1
    6. active
    7. format fs=fat32
    8. assign
    9. exit

    with that commands you will format the flash drive in fat32, if you have a large drive you can select also "format fs=ntfs" in step 7.

    good luck!

    Changing Time Format

    Hi Mary,

    There's a possibility that the set up time format in your computer Basic Input/Output System (BIOS) is military time. To have this checked, you can try to reset the time of your computer through Control Panel. See the steps below on how to do
    so:

    • Open Control Panel > Clock, Language, and Region >
      Change date, time, or number formats. This would open the
      Region
      window.
    • From there, click on Additional settings at the bottom part. It will open the Customize Format.
    • Click Reset; then, OK.

    The steps should work; however, if not, we suggest that you contact manufacturer and have the BIOS time checked.

    Let us know what happens after doing the suggestions .
