I’ve been looking and reading other posts on this and I can’t find a straight answer. Long story short my 6TB took a nose dive, I was able to recover my data via Linux. My issue is what do I do with this drive, I attempted to use the format option from within the mycloud software and that failed, SMART failed bla bla bla. So I said screw it and formatted the drive in Linux. What I wanted to do now is reformate it so that I can use it again with mycloud to see if it’s still all jacked up. But for the life of me, I can’t find a straight answer on how to do it. Is there a utility or something I can use? Again I don’t care about the data on the drive or anything, just figured Id attempt to repair before I put this thing out at 100yrs.
( I have Linux Ubuntu loaded up via VMFusion on my MAC so maybe that’s my issue I am having IDK)
