Is there data on the drive you need?

If possible:

1-copy the data off the drive.

2-run secure data disposal on the drive. this will make it like new. *MAKE SURE YOU DONT RUN IT ON YOUR OS DRIVE BY MISTAKE.

3-go into disk managment in Win7... your drive will be waiting to be format as you please. :)
