Windows Cannot Format This Drive : Solution [TRP]
Today, when I plugged my flash drive and tried to format it, I got an error saying “Windows cannot format this drive. Quit any disk utilities or other programs that are using this drive, and make sure that no Windows is displaying the contents of the drive.”
Have a look :
I tried other formatting tools but got the same error again and again. So here is a simple solution to format any drive if you get this error.
1. First download and install a freeware called Unlocker. Click here to visit the download link.
2. Now after installing this tool, right click on the drive that you want to format and click on Unlocker.
3. When unlocker will open, select Unlock All.
4. Now after unlocking the drive, now you can easily format the drive without any error.
This method is 100% working and tried by me. If you are facing any problem or still getting the same error, recheck the steps above or write a comment below.
