✔ Best Answer
You can't format a partition that's currently being used (for example, you can't format the Windows partition while Windows is running).

If you aren't running Windows when you try to format, the disk may have failed and will need to be tested to find out if that's the case.

The links are here for the disk manufacturer's testing software:
