I am confused because you state you have 3 hard drives - meaning 3 individual devices - in your PC. So if the hard drive that has the E: partition on it is failing, why do you need to do anything with the (separate) hard drive that has C: and Windows on it? Who told you you should do that, and what problem is that supposed to solve?
I'm was gonna format the E: drive which was the one I told you that it is damaged. So II should be able to do that in Windows isn't? But I can't, it just pop-up that message.
Sorry to confused you, yes I have 3 HDD.
Because the guy told me to format the C: (With the windows on it) then only can know what is the problem with the E:, and I don't know why I must format? I don't think is needed....
The problem suppose to solve is the E: drive, because is failing and running slowly. The E: drive that is cannot be format.
