Some progress - the disk is faulty but Windows 10 has managed to format an NTFS partition of 13gb which is usable. It has given a separate letter to the rest of the disk which is described as RAW unallocated and is unusable. My question now is this. Is it possible to delete that RAW partition leaving the disk with one 13gb partition called E? My reason is that Windows sometimes comes up with an invitation to format the RAW partition called F which is not possible, and is an irritation.
