I need to reinstall Windows but when I attempted to do so I got an error telling me that the drive is corrupt and that Windows was unable to be installed.
I want to erase the drive and I am wondering if the erase tool will delete all of the partitions on my drive. On the support page for the Erase feature (https://support.wdc.com/knowledgebase/answer.aspx?ID=1211#windlg) it says that the partitions and data will be wiped and/or erased with the implication of being overwritten but it doesn’t say deleted. I just need some clarification. I don’t know if partitions are considered data.
I’m guessing not and that I will need to erase each partition individually.
I really don’t know - I just know I want those partitions gone.
Thanks for any input.
