Format USB hard drive

#1

I have a new Tablo lite with external hard disk drive. After connecting the hard disk drive I get an error message stating the hard disk needs to be formatted. I read that pressing the blue reset button to force a reset will cause the Tablo to format the disk drive. I did that and nothing happened, other than having to go through the entire set up process all over again.

You may have mis-read somethng. In the First Time Setup from the Tablo Knowledge Base


scroll down to the section Format Hard Drive
