USB Format Drive using CMD (dos)

Format Drive using CMD

I then backed up the data and decided to format it. To format a drive using CMD, type the following Windows+R And type CMD  hit Enter:

format E: /fs:ntfs

Again, here E is the letter of the USB or external drive which you want to format. So make sure you replace it with the correct letter in your case, carefully. Once you are sure, hit Enter. You may be asked to enter the Disk Label too. Type it and hit Enter again.
Disk formatting will commence.

CHKDSK stops responding

If you face a situation, where CHKDSK stops responding and cannot recover from file corruption, when you run the CHKDSK /SCAN command in Windows 8, you may Run System File Checker and see if it helps. Or else you could download hotfix from KB2906994 and apply it to your Windows 8 computer.
