Reformat HDD after Tablo use?


#1

Does anyone know how to reformat an External HDD after use with a Tablo? I bought a larger HDD and would like to use the drive on my PC.

I plug it into my PC (Win 10) amnd see the “please wait while installing” and then nothing - drive does not appear in the list.

Thanks
Ian

You have to format it using Windows Disk Manager located in the control panel

You’ll see your plugged in drive here and can format it, give it a new Drive Letter, etc

You need to use the disk management utility in Windows to delete the partition on the drive. Create a new partition and format the drive in NTFS or FAT32.

The Tablo uses a Linux based partition which is not recognized in Windows.
