This is my first post here. I’m trying to format this external HD to ntfs using Linux. Everything seems to be OK but the process hangs on “Syncing device.” message. I tried with the command line>
sudo mkntfs -c 512 -v --debug -Q -I -F -L WD1 /dev/sdb1
The same happens when I try to do it with GParted, the process hangs in the same point.
Does it mean the disk is damaged?
Thank you very much in advance,
