Easeus offers a variety of software...which particular program did you use...and did you read the instructions for using said program?

I use Easeus Partition Master to clone my Windows partitions/drives...I've not had any problems with the outcomes.

System manufacturer and model?

but easeus are able to detect it as RAW but unable to format it to nfts when i try to partition it.

this is a custom build desktop

I would simply...first, run the appropriate hard drive diagnostic to verify that it's worthwhile to try to use the hard drive...then, assuming hard drive has no problems...delete everything on current partition and try again.

RAW Volume (Quietman) - http://www.theeldergeek.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=36698

What is RAW file system - http://www.raw-file-system.com/

The file system...may be damaged...because the hard drive is faulty. You cannot just assume that formatting/creating a new partition...will solve your problems.

The appropriate hard drive diagnostic is still my first step.
