I want to format an external hard drive using a DOS command. The OS is Win 2003. The drive letter is 'e:' . When I try the following syntax I get: "Enter Current Volume Label for Drive E:".
format e: /q /u
I want to do this in a program so I can't have it asking me to enter more data. We run a C program for a backup strategy and I want to format each external drive before we backup daily.
