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,

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!
