Hi all! Is it ok to do other things on my pc (i.e. surfing the web) while it's formatting a second 8TB HDD which takes approx 15-16 hours?! (I have Windows 10 Pro and an SSD as my system disk) - I need to perform a standard format (and not a quick one) to make sure it scans it for any bad sectors. Thank you!
