HDD Bad Partitions Tags: Hard Drives Linux Storage Last response: October 29, 2011 10:34 PM in Storage Share Clob October 28, 2011 10:51:10 PM I'm having an issue were my HDD someone has corrupted partitions from a botched linux install. I cant seem to delete, format, or recover these partitions. Does anyone have a suggestion on software I may use. Disc management in windows has proved to be useless as well as Ubuntu's disc manager. Thanks, -Clob More about : hdd bad partitions sminlal a c 414 G Storage October 28, 2011 11:56:36 PM I'd suggest downloading and running the Secure Erase Utility. That should comletely wipe the drive, after which you should be able to run one of the normal partitioning utilities. As a precaution, I'd make sure there are no other drives connected when you do the erase. The last thing you want to do is to erase the wrong drive by mistake!
