|Me? A novice by all means, but also a tweaker at heart. Had same problem with formatting my slave.|
I searched all the post for help and most of them were over my head.
Took matters into my own hands,
Went to: Start, Run, typed in "Format D:" enter
The MS Dos CMD prompt window appears and states:
"WARNING ALL DATA ON NON-REMOVABLE DISK DRIVE D: WILL BE LOST, DO YOU WANT TO CONTINUE FORMAT! Proceed with format (Y/N)"
CMD prompt states; "Format cannot run because the volume is in use by another process. Format may run if this volume is dismounted first. ALL OPEN HANDLES TO THIS VOLUME THEN WOULD BE INVALID. Would you like to try to force a dismount of this volume? (Y/N)"
"xxxxxxx" enter (Volume name as shown on drive directory in explore)
"Volume dismounted. All opened handles to this volume are now invalid. 0/100 percent completed."
Finally success, too easy!
