    I am trying to format my new HDD, however every time I try with the program I get an error. The drive is formatted as NTFS. Any help?

    Try deleting the partition in Windows ... (It DOES NOT need to be formatted in FAT, FAT32 or NTFS first)

    Then Create a "Simple Volume"

    DO NOT format it in Windows ....

    Now, try your WBFS tool to format the "raw" partition ....

    Ok, now that it is formatted, I am STILL getting errors. Is this because of Vista? I cannot even run it as an admin, the option is grayed.

    Turn off User Account Control.

    I did get it to work, but I had to go through my C Drive to do it... Vista is a pain.

    Did you disable UAC. It makes things much easier. I actually like Vista.
