To format a partition using Disk Management, use these steps:
Right-click the new hard drive and select the Format option.
Check the Perform a quick format option.
Quick Tip: While performing a quick format wipes the drive faster, it doesn't check if the drive is damaged. On the other hand, when clearing the option, a full format will be performed, which not only wipes the drive clean, but it'll also check for bad sectors. It's an option that could take several hours, but it's a good practice to make sure the hard drive is in working conditions.
Once you've completed the steps, the system will format the selected partition on the drive, and then you can start using it to store files.
