[solved]mkfs issues

Post by captcharis » Tue Feb 27, 2018 3:45 am

Hello guys!!!

I'm trying to fix a broken external disk
I'm using fdisk tool & everything going well till the moment I'm starting mkfs command
It returns a msg :Failed to make "FAT" file system or something similar anyway
The same problem appears also trying to fix it in Windows
Do you thing that is something else that logical error?

External disk had had never an accident.

Thanks in advance

You're welcome, though I'm sorry for the bad news. However it may not be too late. Try [ur=https://www.linux.com/learn/get-your-da ... ery-toolsl]this[/url].
