One of my 4 Seagate drives kept coming up with errors and bad sectors on the drive after running check disk and the computer tring to fix itself, it now shows up in disk managment as healthy. But is unaccesable.


I am going to try to start over and format and strip the 4 seagate drives.

I dont remember the settings I should choose. Here are the options the computer is asking me to choose from.

File System - NTFS - (I know this is right)

Allocation unit size - Default
512
1024
2048
4096
8192
16k
32k
64k

Perform a quick format ? ___ (this is an option box)

Enable File and folder compression? ___ (this is an option box)

Thanks Daren

Default...quick format...no compression. That'll do it.
