    Hi,

    I just picked up this 2tb usb 3.0 drive dirt cheap but I cannot detect it on windows. Any clue how to format the thing on windows 10 to use for storage on PC rather than Xboner?

    I've had a lot of external drives but this is the first that doesn't show up in disc management, although it pops up and is named under USB/disk devices.

    Many thanks in advance!

    EDIT: ok solved!

    Open Devices & Printers > Fix yellow triangle (no idea what the issue was) and reboot > initialize drive through MBR with disk management > format to NTFS.
