You shouldn't neet a formatting utility -- just use the regular Win 7 process:
ok cool, i thought that was the way to go but was told to download that tool, anyway thanks its working but is super slow.

A full format, as opposed to a "quick format", can take over 8 hours for large drives.
It's a bit late now, since you've started the full format, but you could have deleted the partition, created a new partition in the empty space, and then given the new partition a "quick format".
