Format stops at 8%


New Member
Hi, I'd like to reformat my hard drive so that nothing could be restored as I'm planning on selling it. The problem I'm having is that the format stops at 8% every time. A quick format using the built in windows formatting tool works fine but the longer format in windows and the formats on eraser always stop. The hard drive looks empty when I open it but when I use Recuva to see if there is anything there most of the contents are still recoverable.

Could someone help please.
Eraser doesn't format drives; what, exactly, are you trying to do in Eraser? Which Eraser version and which OS are you using?
