My WD has run out of space. I have deleted all the files on it, but doing this did not free up space; it is still at capacity. Thus, I was thinking reformatting the drive might purge all the old backups I no longer want and renew the 500 GB of space.
The current formatting is OS Extended for Mac and I use a 2008 Macbook Pro Aluminum. Also, I cannot find a WD application anywhere on my computer. So, my questions:
- To restore the 500 GB of space, is reformatting the correct approach?
- If so, what do I do to reformat?
- Should there be WD Passport software somewhere in my applications?
