Unable to initialise and partition a HDD on Computer Management (Windows 10)

Hi everyone,

I am having problems initialising my WD Blue HDD (1TB) through Computer Management on Windows 10. The error I’ve been given was a ‘Data error (cyclic redundancy check)’, from this point I was unable to initialise my HDD to create a partition. So I am stuck at this error and I couldn’t do anything to make the HDD work again.

So, please could you advise me what I could do to fix this error.

If you have any questions relating to my problem, please feel free ask!

Anyways, thanks in advance!
