  1. Recover Formatted Drive


    We say "it can never happen to me", until it does...the unthinkable!!! I have a WD external 1tb backup drive that has my families archive on it. Everything. 20 years worth of backups. This is the cruel, cruel ironic part of this tragic tale - I got a second WD external 1tb backup drive, and I was finally getting around to backing up my backup. Been telling myself for years to get this done. I was literally in the process, the beginning anyway, of being responsible. Somebody gave me the second drive so, naturally, I wanted to start by formatting it.&nbs

    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!
