Recovering external HHD, use of drive, not data.

OI recently purchased a Seagate expansion 1TB.

Hard drive failed and person using it attempted reformatting.

I (ignorantly) tried fixing with TestDisk

I have no partitions.

I care not for the data (unlike everything i have found online)

I just want to use the HDD.

Can i fix it?

REPLY:
few weeks old, but i believe it corrupted due to improper removal.

I would return but lost receipt, but i read i can repartition because health of drive is good, just cant seem to find how.

  1. If it's recent, take it back to the store. I wouldn't trust any HDD that has shown signs of failure.
