How to fix 'The disk in drive is not formatted, do you want to format it now' error?
The disk in drive F is not formatted, do you want to format it now? When trying to open the drive in Windows Explorer, Windows prompts: "You need to format the disk in drive before you can use it. Do you want to format it?"
"The disk in drive is not formatted, do you want to format it now" error may be caused by many reasons, such as virus attack, corrupted DBR or power failure, etc. When you check it in disk management, it might be healthy, but it might have no file system and drive letter.
