|I am trying to format the hard drive on my old computer so that I can recycle it.|
When I try in Windows, it says that it cannot format drive. Quit any disk utilities using this drive and make sure no window is displaying contents of drive.
I have also tried in DOS and I get the message:
Format cannot run because the volume is open 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).
On entering 'Y', message reads "Cannot lock the drive. The volume is still in use".
I am using the computer in 'safe' mode and am signed on as 'Administrator'!
Can you offer a solution?
