Hi all, I just bought a new 250GB Hitachi drive for my system but it's taking a HUGE amount of time to format. It's now been going for almost 24 hours and it's stuck on 64%. It went from 0-55% in around 40 minutes, but after that it's been crawling. I'm formating through W2k's Computer management console and was thinking of just aborting it and getting a bootdisk to do it with fdisk but I'm not sure if aborting a format is a good idea? Also if it still goes slowly then I'll be stuck out of my computer and have no music.
The other oddity is that it is plugged in with a pci controller card, so I could plug it in to a motherboard slot to see if that helps?
Any of this sound like a good idea, or should I just let it run it's course?
