A new external hard drive to use as a backup. (Windows 7) In formatting, when I get to "Disk Management" I get a list of my disks in a dropdown menu, included is my new 465GB hard Disk with "Unallocated" notice.This is as far as I can go with formatting. All prior reading suggested I should from here be given a choice of formatting, as in "NTFS" name change, volume etc. When I right click on the disk it says "Create a volume disk Create a striped disk. I'm afraaid to go there as I don't understand it. Can anyone on the forum get me moved on through formatting,when I intend to install "Macrium Reflect" as a backup (Fingers crossed).
