What app can be used to perform a low level format
I have an old usb hdd and Im trying to fix it by running a low level format. A regular format will not work. The problem started after using windows to run a format on the drive. Its a mini usb hdd. A low level format may not work either as Ive read somewhere that the firmware is sometimes saved on the disc platters and if so then I guess Im screwed cuase I cant find any firmware for this drive anywhere. Its a WD Passport Pocket. Not really worth the time I guess but now I'm just interested to see if it can be done.
