    i connected my external hard disk drive and its showing me the error message ''cyclic redundancy check''. i installed a file recovery software and i recovered about 1 gigabyte of data on the free trial. i just want to format it now and it proving difficult. i am willing to forfeit the contents of the drive. i just need my hard disk working again.

    Hi the47thsulaiman, and welcome to TSG.

    Please let us know the brand and model number of the hard drive and what operating system is running on the computer.

    Can you please explain what difficulties you are encountering?

    Assuming you are running some version of MS-Windows, have you tried using the Check Disk utility that is included with Windows to scan and repair errors in the hard drive?
