Factory set or reformat 1TB External Drive what is best?

I have a WD 1TB External Hard drive and i would like to re tet it to factory settings. can i do it ? it is connected to a windows 10 PC ? Thanks

Other than a password if you set one, There are no settings to reset.

So should I just reformat it then or will the remove the software installed? The reason I need to know is i am unable delete files. Thanks Bash

Reformatting it won’t matter. You can replace the software by downloading it from the WD Support website.

That is great to hear Tony, thankyou for your help. So where do I go to download the software is there a link you can send me please. What would be the best one for me? I am running Windows 10 -Bash
