I attempted to reformat a hardrive having backed up all the drivers for the motherboard etc. I used fdisk as I wanted partitions (something I have done many times with other pcs in the past). Having created partitions, on reboot volume labels had been allocated to D & E drives although I had not yet reformatted. E's label was *remote* in lowercase and I was not able to reformat as this was classed as 'invalid'. I am at a loss at to what to do next with this as I cannot seem to get over this incorrect volume label. Has anyone get any ideas?
