WD My Passport SE Format Using Quick Formatter Takes Forever


I had kept my external passport HDD on formatting when my laptop battery died, it apparently wiped out the file system and windows was then not able to reformat the HDD. I have now downloaded the WD Quick Formatter Tool and started my HDD since last evening. Its been more than 30 hours and it is still going. Unfortunately the UI on the formatter tool doesn’t even show percentage complete. Can anyone please guide me on what could be the problem? Is the HDD bricked?

Please advise. 


Find your dive at WD and look in Downloads and find Digital Life Guard and run it to check for problems. You can also format with it by writing zeroes  and it simetimes fixes bad sectors,


Thank you Joe_s… I will try that, the formatter is still running should i force stop it?
