[SOLVED] whats the best way to format a primary partition- using command prompt or disk management?


Jun 11, 2015
hi i was using my windows 10 on Western Digital WD10EZEX 1TB Internal Hard Drive for last 3 years. it has 3 primary partitions and it's in MBR. today i clean installed my windows 10 on new mx500 ssd which is in GPT. now i wanna clean format one of the primary partition of my old HDD, but i dont wanna delete anything from other partitions of that HDD. whats the best way to do it? using command prompt or disk management?
disk management is more visual and will ensure you don't make any mistakes better than command prompt.

with that said, they both do the same things the same way so it really does not matter which way you decide to go.
