    I bought a 931GB Removable Hard Disc as my last Toshiba Lap Top gave up on me and I lost everything.

    I have a new HP Pavilion Lap Top but would like to download all onto a separate disc device, but W10 goes spinning for ever then says W10 cannot Format this device, so what can I do.

    Wiped hard drive partitions keep coming back on Win10 Recovery disc

    Thanks all for taking the time to review my case.

    I guess my description was misleading.

    I meant I am unable to wipe hard drive`s partitions. Not the virtual drive ones.

    Step 1 - Boot error on normal startup saying a recent hardware or software change could be the cause

    Step 2 - Repair disc. Attempts to do startup repair but fails saying it could not do so.

    Step 3 - New OS installation. On partition delete, I attempted to delete existing partitions. Fails with message we couuldn`t format the drive.

    Step 4 - Launched command prompt repair and attempted clean. Though t says clean is successful, contents are still undeleted.

    Step 5 - Used partition manager within recovery cd, to format the hard drive of my tab. (32gb). Format says successful but the contents on hard drive came back.

    Step 6 - tried to convert partitions to MBR. No luck. Same issue.

    I am able to read my hard drive contents through to command prompt. So I am presuming no hard drive crash.

    Also virtual ccd works fine. So no processor issue I guess.

    I am damned for now unable to figure ouit what is the issue.

    3250 Hard format

    I think You can´t. That is the only working code on S60v3 devices. The old methods to do an hard format don´t work on last generation of devices.
