I just purchased a new 4 TB My Book that was pre-formatted for Windows (NTFS). I was under the impression I could just reformat the drive to use with Mac (want to use exFAT), but when I tried to reformat the drive using disk utility, the process fails saying it “could not write to the last block.” The same thing happens when I try and use WD Software.
I enabled my macbook air to read NTFS using Paragon software, then Tux(something), and the advise in this article … all to no avail.
Please help. I hope I haven’t damaged the drive with multiple formatting attempts that were doomed to fail.
Thanks in advance,
