Which drive do I choose in Disk Utility Mac Sierra

  fantail 03:02 23 Jun 2017

There are icons of Hard drives on the disc utility side bar. If I want to erase/repair and external drive, which icon do I choose? The one to the left with the name of the drive, or the HD under it set out to the right?

The icon for the external hard drive will be shown in the sidebar usually with the name of the manufacturer. Underneath that icon their maybe others to indicate partitions or items such as Time Machine on that external drive.

To erase/repair the entire external drive select the topmost icon (manufacturers name) then select the action you want to carry out using the options at the top of the window. Erase etc etc.
