My Time Machine drive is a 1TB Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex. Laat week it wouldn't mount and DU couldn't repair it, so I took it to a local shop and they recoverd all data. They also said I should be able to reuse the drive (for non-critical jobs like file transfers) if I reformatted it.


However, when I attempt to do so using DU, it reports "Unmounting disc" - and as I said, it isn't and CAN'T be mounted. After maybe 10 minutes I get "Partition failed".


Any thoughts about how I might be able to reformat this drive?
