How to clean My Book Elite to start fresh?

I had a corrupted O/S. New one was installed by DELL. After reinstalling most programmes and apps, we were able to reinstate the most important files from backup. Now that the comp is “clean” I would like to clean the ELITE BOOK and start from scratch.  

Before doing so I need to instal the newest version…of WD.      I welcome any and all help. Thanks


You can format the drive, this will delete everything from it so you can start from a empty/clean drive.
