Hello lads! So i got this external Hard drive plugged in with 2 partitions (F,G). I am having problems formating or even accesing F, I also think that its win10 installed in that partition. Tryed a quick format, through cmd and still nothing. Any help to format it would be apprecieted.

If you're looking to wipe, try CCleaner if you have or don't have it. Go to options tab, and under Settings tab, there's Secure Deletion. Choose the drive and just do a normal file deletion.

@Zero60 The problem is that the HDD doesnt even show up there, lol.

you need to check disk management in windows and eventually perform initialization and primary partitioning, if that's a new drive

if you are 100% sure you want to delete its content completely, use DISKPART via command line in windows

@tzzsmk The drive doesnt even show in Disk Managmet and yeah, i tried Diskpart too and still nothing. LOL. Weird, aint it? xD

if it's not shown in diskpart, it's probably dead...

last time I had similar issue, when Windows 10 bricked my barely year old 860 EVO SSD, I was given new drive within warranty service
