I am stying to format a WD 3T MyBook external drive. The Windows Formatter has stalled at less than 10%. This is after correcting some file system errors. Can I stop the formatting? Will stopping ruin the drive? I’d like to retry the formatting with a somewhat different routine using the Disk Management. utility?
Any other suggestions about how to solve the problem other than the one outlined above, assuming it is ok to stop the stalled format?
