I am running Windows 7 with WD MyBook Essentials 3T external drive. I previously used this drive on an older Windows XP computer.
I kept getting “One of the backup files could not be created 90x8078002A)” and
“The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error (0x8007045D)”
So, I need to reformat the drive without tthe XP capability.
But, when I execute WD Quick Formatter.exe it stops dead saying "Your WD External drive is in use. Please close
all applications and try again."
I did that and get the same message.
I even downloaded this program again putting it onto my C drive and killed all WDxxxx processes with TaskMgr
How do I get to re-format the drive???
