As I do for years, I buy external disks and fdisk these to create and ext3 partitin and use it for my Debian storage server.
I always buy disks from WD but this 3TB disk is a pain in the **bleep**. I somehow can’t get rid of that NTFS partition. I hate NTFS and I don’t wan’t it and I don’t need it. I need to throw this partition away.
But fdisk can’t write the partition table to the disk. Is there any solution for this? What happend to the times that you buy a disk and were free to do with it whatever you wanted?
