Hello, I've been looking through google and going in circles. Maybe my terminology is wrong and is why I cant find what I need. I hope someone here can help me.
I have a couple of WD 3B red drives. I had them in my old NAS (Netgear ReadyNAS duo). It started playing up so have now bought the 102 version with the intention of putting my WD drives in it. It didn't work. So, I took the drives out and deleted the partitions using a Win 7 64 machine and disk management. Now I have a drive with unallocated space of about 750GB on my 3TB drives - I know they'll only be about 2.7TB when formatted properly rather than whatever disaster I've done to them
I'm really wanting to format (or not?) these back to the drives as they came from the factory and were new and sealed. That way, I should be able to install them into my new NAS and it'll take care of everything for me. At the moment, my NAS doesn't recognise them at all - aaarrrghhh
Luckily, I backed up all info days before the issue so data loss will be very minimal and I'm not worried about that. Just how to get these drives back to a non existent state that I can put them in my new NAS and it'll run through everything for me and I can get back to networked data and media on my new NAS
Thanks for any and all help
