I've decided that i'm tired of having so much crap on my slave drive, so i made a copy of everything on it, transfered it to my main drive, and then i tried to format it. it gave me the classic "windows cannot format this drive. quit any disk utilities or programs and blah blah blah"...i'm sure many of you have seen that before. my problem is, i'm 90% sure that i have no processes running off of my slave drive, yet i keep getting the same message. i've tried using disk management to format it but that hasn't worked either. hence the confusion. is there any way that i can force it to format anyway? or how can i find out what might be running off of it so i can either delete it or stop it and then format? if you want more info about my system, check my profile. i listed everything i could in there.
