DNS ShareCenter - Reformatting a HDD
« on: February 08, 2012, 08:26:06 AM »

DNS ShareCenter owners sometimes have difficulty coaxing their ShareCenter to reformat an existing HDD. This procedure will force the DNS ShareCenter to provide the option to format an existing HDD.


  • Power-down the DNS ShareCenter
  • Remove the HDD that requires reformatting
  • Mount the removed HDD in a PC
  • Delete the existing partitions in Windows
  • Re-seat the HDD in the DNS ShareCenter
  • Power-up the DNS ShareCenter
  • The DNS ShareCenter will no longer recognize the HDD as containing a valid volume and will prompt to reformat the HDD
