30bg External harddrive in usb box, I thought i coulld rid the corupted files by formating in ntfs, so did quick format with allow compress resulting in a drive that now asks me if I want to reformat normally when opened but the formatage does not reach the end.

1) I would like to reformat this drive into ntfs.
2) I would like to know what free program to use to remove corupted files.
3) I would like to know what free program to reformat.(better one than XP's one)

To be honest I thought I knew this stuff then this harddrive has humbled me

Hello fleamailman!

The manufacturer of the hard drive should have a utility for formatting the drive.
