DBAN - Hard drive format


New Member
I have recently reformatted two hard disks using DBAN and have just reinstalled Windows back onto the smaller of the two. Upon opening 'My Computer' I have noticed that the second, larger drive isn't visible, I assume that this is not in a format that windows would recognise. Can anyone advise as to how I would go about formatting this as NTFS?


...Last time I checked, DBAN was for overwriting a drive (erasing it), not for formatting it. Depending on how the drive was wiped, you may have to partition it and format it after using DBAN. If you go to Computer Management in Windows, go to storage and then Disk Management. From there it should list the drive without a drive letter. Right-click on it and select format.
