I have a hard drive with Windows 10 installed.( 64 bit )

As I have to format this drive I did some search on the internet and found a page which claimed:

 

Go to Control Panel --> AdmTools --> Computer Management --> Disk Management  then

right click on the drive to be formatted.

Select file system , then cluster size , then click OK and formatting should start.

 

My problem is that I cannot see any cluster size and therefore no OK button which should start the

formatting.

 

I attached a screen shot of "file system"

 Can anybody tell me what I should do next in order to start the process ?

Your help is appreciated

Let Windows Format it when you reinstall WIN 10

Boot Win 10 From Disc or USB install , select C:\ to Install , windows will then Format it and Install Win 10 after.

I forgot to mention that I want to format and then install Windows 7 ( I have the DVD )

What is the procedure in this case ?

Choose the option to format the drive at the start of the Windows 7 installation.
