okay I have re-done the whole process of low-level formatting and got to the clean step again and it still came up with the same error. I followed the information I was given to look at the event log and I believe this was the error I received.
Cannot zero sectors on disk \\?\PhysicalDrive1. Error code: \\?\PhysicalDrive1
my only question is this the right one?.. the source is VDS Basic Provider just curious if that is correct.
Also if any of you can provide more help with this information known.
