Formatting an external 500GB HDD took almost >6 hours that I started like:
D:\>format /FS:fat32 F: The type of the file system is EXFAT. The new file system is FAT32. Enter current volume label for drive F: musix WARNING, ALL DATA ON NON-REMOVABLE DISK DRIVE F: WILL BE LOST! Proceed with Format (Y/N)? y Formatting 476810M
finally responded with the error:
The volume is too big for FAT32.
However according to MSFT there are no such limitations. (I used XP specs, while I am formatting in Win7, ok?) I am not formatting the drive during setup but on an installed version from the command prompt.
I want to use this disk with the maximum available capacity as en external HardDrive connected to an MDI interdface in my car to play music.
What are the proper settings for that and can I use/format the (almost) full 500GB?
